Clinton Says Midterm Elections Won't Be Like 1994

In an interview on Meet the Press, former President Bill Clinton predicted that would avoid the political bloodbath during the 2010 elections that they endured in 1994 during his first term in office.

Said Clinton: "There's no way they can make it that bad."

"Number one, the country is more diverse and more interested in positive action. Number two, they've seen this movie before, because they had eight years under President Bush when the Republicans finally had the whole government, and they know the results were bad. And number three, the Democrats haven't taken on the gun lobby like I did, and they took 15 of our members out. So I don't think -- it'll be, whatever happens, it'll be manageable for the president."
