Thank you Ross Perot, for:

Helping make Bill Clinton our President and helping Dems turn many moderately red states hard blue ones.

Fvcking up in your public speaking in a debate and helping the Clinton administration bring NAFTA public support from the 30% range to the 60% range, setting a precedent for TPP and it having support.

Helping bring the Reform Party to creation, and giving Donald Trump the idea to get into politics.

No matter your affiliation, we can thank Ross Perot for a lot of things, whether actually or sarcastically.

And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear - that I'm not here."

Nate Silver from fivethirtyeight recently did a documentary video (about 8 minutes in length) that completely dispels the Perot myth. Perot did NOT give the election to Clinton. Had he not have been on the ballot, the exit polls show that those votes would have been either no shows or split evenly among Bush and Clinton.

Regardless, Clinton would have won.
