The national debt was somewhere around 4 and a half trillion when he entered into office, and 8 years later it was just over 5 and a half trillion. Bush went from that and took it all the way to 10 and a half. Then Obama has taken that 10 and a half and turned it into almost 16. However, Clinton did have major pitfalls. On debt, he kept our spending lower than the past 12 years. Even Bush before him was a steady increase of half a trillion a year, or so. Eisenhower was great for us, IMO. Really, all of them between Eisenhower and Carter were great years, wish I could have been born 30 years earlier, haha.
