Dionne: Clinton, Bush fates explain contrasting party politics

1 Comment | Leave a Comment


The Clinton political dynasty is still alive. The Bush dynasty has been routed. Their contrasting fates, to this point at least, tell us much about our two parties, the nature of this year’s presidential election, and the dueling legacies themselves.
