Clinton Adminstration Passé Blues

The hold and love affair with the Clinton days has finally ended. There is the view that the great days of a pre 9/11world, were the best in the nations history. The person at the helm that received all the accolades for the success was the President Bill Clinton and the eight-year administration. When President Barack Obama narrowly defeated Senator Hillary Clinton, it was viewed that she should be his running mate. This snub of the first women to receive over 18 million votes to be President was a sign of the shine wearing off. She did land the Secretary of State job in the cabinet but it is not clear if that was to get her away from being a dissenting voice to the administration. Then last week Terry McAuliffe  a Clinton partner and DNC loyalist lost an election when he out spent his opponent two to one. Then we find out that the new North Miami high school will be named after former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, rather than the first female U.S. Attorney General, Janet Reno. Janet Reno was a longtime Miami-Dade state attorney before serving as the country’s attorney general from 1993 to 2001 under the President Clinton administration. The naming committee decided on the Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School Biscayne Bay Campus. In fairness, the Mourning family has done a lot of good work with schools in the Miami area, and the huge Cuban population of south Florida never got over Janet Reno sending of Emilio Estefan back to Cuba.
