Maybe so, but your anecdotal evidence is not compelling.

If you go by the price-to-rent ratio, it certainly doesn't seem like a bubble at that point.


Well, let's just go with 97 as a jump off point.

that is a full 3 years, if we discount the first 2 years at a minimum which were not remotely successful for CLinton, then it is still the housing bubble that played a large role in Clinton being seen favorably.

The bubble was a big factor of the perception of Clinton, and why folks felt wealthier at the end of his presidency IMO, and thus the percived view of it as abundantly successful
