This chapter discusses in detail Bill Clinton's “enlargement” strategy. It looks at how this strategy slowly unraveled a year after it reached its high point in September 1993. It also discusses the possible causes of the failure of enlargement and the practical shortcomings of the strategy, such as the unwillingness of the president to pursue his goals in the face of serious domestic resistance.
