William “Bill” Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States. Clinton was born on August 19th, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. He became the Attorney General of Arkansas from 1977 to 1979, Governor of the same state from 1983 to 1992, and then the President from 1993 to 2001.
For his presidency, he wanted to end racial discrimination, continue the economic success, end big government, and boost education. Clinton did try to reform health care, but he was not successful. Expanding NATO and achieving a budget surplus are some of the accomplishments Clinton did achieve during his presidency.
In 1998, he was impeached in the House of Representatives, but found not guilty in the Senate. He publicly apologized for his private, extra-marital actions with Monica Lewinsky on national television, but his approval ratings did not go down.
