in case you were wondering, Hillary ain't Bill-- and she won't bring back the 1990s

I don't hear a lot of people making the claim that "Hillary = Bill, so we can have a better economy".

For one thing, people forget how great the economy was in the 1990s.

But even when they remember this, they're wise to remember:
-there were also many positive things happening in the 90s (e.g., massive tech advance, end of Cold War), whereas today, Hillary would be inheriting the rough/tepid Bush/Obama economy
-his positive policy positions would be somewhere between difficult and impossible now (e.g., try asking Dems or even most GOP'ers to go back to his deficit and spending levels; freer trade?? reduce capital gains taxes?!) 
-Hillary ain't Bill-- and she wouldn't be working with relatively impressive GOP'ers
