I'd argue (correctly) that Pres. Reagan contributed more to the collapse of the Soviet Union than Clinton contributed to the booming economic circumstances that coincided with his administration.

Sometimes praise can be heaped on a bit thick by either side for its own heroes.
Presidents usually have less influence on events -- both economic and world wide, than they are given blame or credit for.

Like Reagan with the USSR, Clinton's economic success is a combination of a little dose of good policy and a large dose of luck.
