All you need to know

From Andrew Leonard:

On Jan. 20, 1993, the day Bill Clinton was inaugurated, the Dow Jones Industrial Average stood at 3,241, the national debt was 4 trillion, and the unemployment rate was 7.3 percent. After eight years of Clintonomics, on Jan. 20, 2001, when George Bush took office, the Dow had reached 10,588, the national debt was 5.7 trillion, and the unemployment rate was 4.2 percent.

Today, the Dow closed at 10,482, the unemployment rate is 6.1 percent (and possibly higher tomorrow), and the national debt, this very week, crossed $10 trillion.
