The index of the legacy, in alphabetical order, will cover Arkansas, bimbo eruptions, boxers or briefs, bridge to the 21st century, the contract with America, Dick Morris, don’t ask don’t tell, ending welfare as we know it, the era of big government is over, filegate, free trade, George Stephanopolous, Haiti, Hillary’s health care, I did not have sexual relations with that woman, impeachment, it takes a village, Janet Reno, Ken Star, Kosovo, the Lincoln bedroom…

Linda Tripp, the man from hope, monicagate, NAFTA, NASDAQ, national dialogue on race, new economy, northern Ireland, oral sex is not sex, the president is not irrelevant, Rwanda, socks, trade with China, travelgate, triangulation, vast right-wing conspiracy, Vince Foster, Whitewater, who lost Russia, and Zoe Baird. Bill Clinton is history, depending on what the meaning of “is” is.
