Of course not, which is why I said "the Clinton years," and not Clinton himself. It's the fact that there was very little public support for impeachment, and that the likes of Paul Weyrich went nuts, admitting for the first time that the U.S. was not a moral majority being manipulated by a gang of elite immoralists, but in fact the majority itself was immoral. Weyrich, you may remember, blamed the Frankfurt School for this sorry state of affairs.
