More on the Federal Debt

In response to my post on the Federal Debt Spike, reader Todd commented:

Would like to see this in real terms or as a percent of gdp. I bet the exponential increase would be even more pronounced.

Makes the Clinton years even more remarkable, the first 7 1/2 Bush years relatively quaint, and the recent response even more dramatic.
