Clinton Detects Similarities Between 2010, 1994, But Says Democrats Can Still Win

Breaking News

This political season feels a "little bit" like 1994, former President Bill Clinton said Monday, comparing President Obama'a struggle to pass health care reforms to his own. But the former president declined to describe the Democratic Congress' efforts this past year as an "overreach."

Speaking to Fox News in an exclusive interview, Clinton said he didn't think Democrats will lose control Congress this year, as they did after his failed effort to create a nationalized health care system in 1993, because Democrats "in effect got more advanced notice" of the anger that is brewing over the debate.

But the president also warned that Congress has an added burden this midterm election year -- an economy that is recovering much more slowly than it did when his administration was digging out of a recession.
