Bill Clinton

Born on Aug. 19, 1946, in Hope, Ark., William (Bill) Jefferson Blythe IV grew up in a troubled home. His father had died in an automobile accident three months before his son's birth. His mother married Roger Clinton, whose surname Bill later adopted. Bill studied in Georgetown University international affairs. After winning a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford University, Clinton returned to the United States to enroll at Yale Law School. On Oct. 11, 1975, he married Hillary Rodham. In 1976 he became Arkansas' attorney general. In 1990 he became chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council. When Clinton announced his candidacy for president in late 1991 his campaign offered change and focused on the economy and the high unemployment rate. Clinton's biggest setback came in 1994, when the Democrats lost control of both houses of Congress to the Republicans. His domestic record showed that he had cut the deficit in half, had expanded earned-income credit for the working poor, and had significantly reduced the number of government workers. In the first years of his administration, Clinton experienced many of his greatest difficulties in the foreign policy realm. Nevertheless, Clinton succeeded in some of his foreign policy efforts. For many people Bill Clinton is famous with scandal Monica Lewinski. The ensuing scandal preoccupied the capital from January 1998. Clinton adamantly denied any sexual involvement with Lewinsky. In August Clinton admitted to an "inappropriate relationship." Because Clinton had testified under oath both in a civil case and before the grand jury that he had not had such a relationship, he was open to the charge of perjury. In November the House Judiciary Committee began impeachment hearings, which ended in mid-December with the refusal to entertain a Democratic motion for censure and the drafting of four articles of impeachment. Clinton became the first elected president in U.S. history to be impeached. Some criticized the president's efforts as having only exacerbated the tensions in the region.Historians will debate for years the meaning of the Clinton legacy. Was he a president who benefited politically from a strong economy, or was he the architect of policies that created economic growth? Or was he a visionary leader who redefined the Democratic Party, or was he a political chameleon who changed en-US" style= "margin-bottom: 0in; text-align: justify">
