Uncommon Commentary #330: UC #329 Follow-Up

I concluded the previous uncommon commentary by writing "Let's just hope that he[Bill Clinton]'s the only President Clinton we'll ever have", but I wasn't quite sincere in that expression.  I've no doubt that Hillary [sic] would be a failure as president, but would that matter after eight years of Obama?  Even should a Republican take office in 2017, the most that he would be able to accomplish would be to slow down the rate at which the USA destroys itself.  Ronald Reagan was perhaps the only truly great president in US history, but even he didn't solve this country's fundamental problems, the foremost of which being what Reagan and others have regarded as its major strength: our obsolescent political system.
