  8. 8. This is Bill Clinton’s Signature.Now, let’s talk about our main person. The42nd president of the United States ofAmerica. His name is William Jefferson “Bill”Clinton. His political party is the democraticparty. This is what he looks like:
  9. 9. In Hot Springs, Bill attended St. Johns CatholicElementary School, Ramble Elementary School,and Hot Springs High School – where he was anactive student leader, avid reader, andmusician. He was in the chorus and playedthe tenor saxophone, winning first chair in thestate bands saxophone section. He actuallyconsidered dedicating his life to music!!

  11. 11. In 1964, Clinton graduated from Hot Springs HighSchool. In 1963, as part of the American Legion Boys’Nation program, he went to Washington, D.C., andshook hands with President John Kennedy at the WhiteHouse. Later Kennedy inspired him to pursue a career inpublic service. Clinton went on to earn a degree fromGeorgetown University in 1968. Afterward, he attendedOxford University on a Rhodes scholarship. In 1973, hereceived a degree from Yale Law School.At Yale, Clinton started dating fellow law student HillaryRodham (starting from 1947). After graduating, thecouple moved to Clinton’s home state, where heworked as a law professor at the University of Arkansas.So, his early career was just being a law professor.
  12. 12. In 1974, Bill ran for Congress against an incumbent Republican Congressman. No oneexpected Bill to win or even be competitive. Bill, however, campaigned hard and only lostby a few hundred votes. Instead of discouraging him, Bill went back out to meet peoplethe day after the election. In 1976, Bill was elected the Attorney General of Arkansas at theage of 30. Two years later Bill ran for governor and won, becoming the youngest governorin the United States in over four decades. Bill Clinton, however, became too ambitious andalienated the voters of Arkansas, losing a close re-election campaign. Although this wouldhave ruined the careers of most politicians, Bill Clinton persevered and rebuilt his imageand won back the governors mansion in 1982. Bill, learning from his earlier mistakes, toneddown his agenda, but still accomplished his goal of improving Arkansas public schools. Billhas also exhibited slightly erratic behavior characterized by several geniuses. In 1988,nearly all of Bill Clintons friends expected him to run for president. As late as thirty minutesbefore Bills press conference, his top aide was convinced that Bill would run for president.Hillary had no clue what Bill had decided. Apparently, Bill decided when he was walking tothe podium that he would seek re-election as governor and not seek the presidency. Bill,however, did make one enormous blunder during the 1988 campaign. Bill gave a horriblespeech at the Democratic National Convention. Many pundits declared his nationalpolitical career dead before it even started. Bill Clinton, however, proved the punditswrong by winning the presidency in 1992, by overcoming a plethora of charges brought bysome very powerful opponents. Throughout, Bill Clinton has surmounted many setbacksduring his presidency including failure of his health care package, the 1994 Congressionalelections, and of course the numerous scandals.
