The article defends former U.S. President Bill Clinton from the attack that he bankrupted the core values of the democratic party and left it ideologically conflicted. It is argued that ever since Jimmy Carter's election in 1976, there has been no coherent platform of the Democrat Party. The success of Clinton's responsible spending and economic policies are discussed, as well as his impact on the Democrat Party.
