Bill Clinton Up And Down

This appeared on the net as an example of a paragraph which has two entirely different meanings, depending on which way you punctuate it.

Dear President Clinton,
I would like to compliment you. I can't stop thinking that you are one of the best Presidents we have had. So many leaders go ahead and propose policies and then botch the job. We expect it. From you, in the years to come, I know we will get better results.
