Bill clinton

  1. 1. Bill Clintonwhy we like him?Any man who can pull away from the scandalous, ridiculous, backstabbing, lyingsituations that Clinton found himself in and still remain respected and loved -- evenby his wife -- deserves to be Man of the Week. The only reason everyone hasforgiven him is because at some point in our lives, we have all been him. He just gotout of it a lot better than most of us would.why is he famous?Bill Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States for two consecutive terms(1993-2001) and did a damn good job. There was also a certain indiscretion with aWhite House intern that made headlines for a little while.overall rating 85Bill Clinton is a very complex individual who has often been described by friends andfoes as the smartest, most natural politician they have ever met. Aside from the 1
  2. 2. moral questions involving the Monica Lewinsky fiasco, Bill Clinton is smart, charmingand clever beyond compare.Dont let the Southern charm fool you; behind it lies a very careful, intelligent manthat plans his every move in the way an architect plans a building. This isnt a flaw;its an invaluable trait of success.personality & talent 96Lets not kid ourselves, anyone that is elected President has charm. People vote forcandidates they like, not just the ones who promise to make the most changes. Afterall, didnt Jesse Ventura get elected Governor of Minnesota?In fact, many women claim that Clinton is unbelievably charming and that they areinstantly hypnotized by his charisma. Whether he is speaking to the nation or to akindergarten class, he gets across to people and inspires an awe-like loyalty amongsupporters.His political prowess is unparalled and revered. He somehow convinced the Americanpeople that he screwed up royally, yet still deserves to remain in the most importantposition in the country. If that isnt a testament to his political power, then nothingis.Manliness 88He certainly looks the part. Big, bulky, masculine. If he wasnt a former President ofthe United States, youd still watch out in a back alley before you made a move onthe big guy. Very few people know just how big he actually is height-wise. But evenwithout the physical attributes, it takes quite a man to be the most powerful personin the world.women magnetism 81Some women find him repulsive but most find him quite attractive. Most womendescribe Bill Clinton using the regular adjectives: charming, masculine, confident,sensitive. But deep down they know there is a bad boy that can sweep them off theirfeet. Clinton is a prime example that intelligence is a trait that women find attractive.accomplishments & fame 99In a political arena, one has reached their acme once theyre President. What elsecan you do? Perhaps becoming Dictator of the World is more powerful but that is 2
  3. 3. setting standards a little too high. He has accomplished everything one canaccomplish during a political career, with one exception, his legacy will be tainted.coolness factor 79We were sold when he played the saxophone on The Arsenio Hall Show. He knowshow to have a good time, and he is instantly the center of attention wherever hegoes, regardless of whether he is the President or not. Privately, even his worstdetractors admit he is one cool cat.personal style 65He wears conservative suits, knit sweaters or over-sized jogging shorts. He oncenoted how everyone gives him ties for Christmas. He has so many ties that he canwear a different one for the next 100 years. But we will cut Billy Boy some slack,after all, he has more important things to think about than the latest fashion trends.That if Mr. Clinton ever decides to nearly destroy himself and his career again, thathe at least pick a woman worth the anguish.Quote"I ask that all Americans demonstrate in their personal and public lives... the highethical standards that are essential to good character and to the continued successof our Nation."- Bill ClintonBiographyWilliam Jefferson Blythe III was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas.

Feeling that he had not accomplished all that he wanted, he ran as theDemocratic candidate in the next gubernatorial election.Campaigning throughout the state, he guaranteed the voters that he would addresstheir specific needs, and he was re-elected in November 1982.By 1991, Clinton believed that the country needed someone with a new vision andplan, and decided to make a run for President.
