The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," said Clinton, D-N.Y. "It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard."
"We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism, we have incompetence," she said. "I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country."
Last night I watched a History Channel show on the American presidents from 1945-1977 (part of a series spanning the whole list). They started talking about Nixon. About how paranoid he was about his enemies, and how he was upset by the leaking problems within his own adiministration. How he deliberately misled the public with his "secret plan" to end the Vietnam war, while actually increasing its scope to Cambodia and Laos. How he didn't tolerate dissent and couldn't believe it when the country disagreed with things he did.
While watching I thought quite honestly to myself... who will history regard as a worse President - Bush or Nixon? Right now, I'd say Nixon by a nose. But Bush still has 3 years.
Update: Obama agrees
