- Character issues dogged Clinton again but his personality, his record of moderate policy initiatives, and a strong economy worked to his benefit.
- Clinton adopted conservative approaches to welfare reform, deficit reduction, and family values while holding to Democratic stances on the environment, health care, and education.
- Clinton made the Republicans' adoption of a conservative platform look extreme by comparison.
- Clinton's support by women and minorities helped him win re-election.
