Ross Perot certainly got sh!t done.

President Clinton should be grateful to Ross Perot for the 1992 vote split, itís how he got elected.

Roos Perotís 30 minute prime time informercial ads in 1992 were pretty cool.

He was incredibly prescient in his predictions and a lot more progressive than his detractors gave him credit for.

I wonder what the US would look like if Ross Perot had won, or if he didnít run in 1992?

Lots of "what if's" there... I remember being very upset at his run in 1992 and I blamed him for the Clinton win.

However, there is no doubt that he paved the way and, in my mind, served as a blueprint for Trump's campaign. Trump used the lessons learned and didn't try to run as an Independent, which will never be successful in our entrenched, two-party, system. So for that, even though we got 8yrs of the Clintons, I am thankful.
