I totally agree that credit for the budget successes of the '90's goes to both parties. A budget's a half President, half Congress kind of a thing. The President gets to propose the initial numbers, but he doesn't get squat that Congress doesn't OK.
If two men who disliked each other as much as Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich were able to set aside their personal feelings long enough to do something right for the country, then maybe there's hope for the next four years, after all. At least, I hope so.
