and that shutdown was over congress getting a raise, not about something as critical as socialized healthcare.

In 1996 the GOP lost the presidential election, lost 3 House seats and gained 2 Senate seats.

In 1998 the GOP lost a further 4 House seats (no change in Senate).

Clinton had little choice, but to negotiate, because the GOP held a majority in both legislative chambers.
