“We’re gonna party like its… 1992?”
By Earnest Gates
Sound familiar? This is a line from Prince’s song, 1999. Why 1992? That is the year President Bill Clinton ran for President.
If you notice, we are starting to see a lot of similarities between Senator Barack Obama and Governor Clinton of 1992. Clinton ran a very centrist general election strategy and Obama is starting to do the same thing.
Now that I think about President Clinton, he didn’t do a bad job, and it wouldn’t be such a bad thing if Obama was to govern like Clinton, but using 21st century methods. If you want a preview of what is ahead, go back and study the Clinton strategy of ’92. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
