The Bill Clinton and Al Gore campaign partnership began during the 1992 Presidential election when they unseated incumbent President George Bush. Bush had alienated many in his party by raising taxes, causing his level of support to be lower. This allowed Clinton and Gore to secure the victory. They won re-election in 1996 against Republican challenger Bob Dole. They won this election by a fairly easy margin as the economy had rebounded from the recession under Bush during Clinton's administration.

During their shared time in office, Clinton and Gore accomplished much, such as fixing the economy that led to their 1996 victory. The duo is also remembered for helping expand protections to the environment and public health. This includes measures to strengthen the Safe Drinking Water Act, becoming tougher on air pollution and smog emissions and clean toxic waste sites.
