Piggybacking off of Amanda's post below, I'm just trying to think of how vicious and vituperative the commentary would have been if Clinton had left Bush with two wars, a tanked economy and a looming budget deficit in his first year that was bigger than any two combined years of deficits in our nation's history. It would have been saucy. And it also wouldn't have been couched in terms of Bush's challenges and his need to reconcile with his opposition.
