    What a douche. We were SO lucky that he lost.

    I would love to have as President the man who invented the Internet.

    And instead, one of the worst presidents in the history of this country beat him.

    By the way, the SNL episode was a re-run from last year ;)

    He never claimed to have "invented" the Internet. However, he DID have a major impact on the commercial growth of the Internet, which there was very little of prior to his and Clinton's visible promotion of it as the "Information Superhighway", and he does deserve some credit for that.

    I'm all for giving credit where credit it due, but conversely not giving credit where credit isn't due.

    The internet's time had come when Bill Clinton arrived at the White House in 1992. In December 1990, Tim Berners Lee had just successfully created the HTTP protocol that made the world wide web possible. The internet (the web) would have grown as it did whether Bill Clinton or Calvin Coolidge was in office.

    Once commercial interests saw the potential its growth could not have been restrained. It didn't need Clinton's "information superhighway" cheerleading.
