Clinton was pretty much of a luckbox. He took over just when the economy was starting to turn. Then the internet bubble took off full speed giving a huge revenue boon to the governement and a congress that forced him to balance things at a time when they could. Of course it all blew up at the end of his term
And some of his decisions lead to future problems (Glass/Steagal, expanding Freddie and Fannie etc.).
But aside that Clinton was very good economically and paid attention to issues of growth. But he fell into one of the sweetest sweet spots any president ever did.
