On Order



Charismatic and compassionate, Bill Clinton is a natural leader.As a young man, he met two of his heroes--President John F. Kennedy and Arkansas senator J. William Fullbright--and from that point on, he knew he wanted to be involved in politics.A born politician, Clinton always seemed to be running for one office or another, and more often than not, he won.Although his political career was filled with great accomplishments and success, Clinton often had to fight against scandals surrounding his private life.Despite these frequent controversies and being impeached, Clinton retained much of his popularity and continues to remain an active political figure.
