Bill Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States. He was elected in 1992 over incumbent George H.W. Bush. Bush was unpopular due to a recession, growing defecits, and breaking his promisee not to raise taxes.

As president, Clinton presided over an era of general peace and prosperity. Clinton presided over the longest period of economic growth in American history and became the last president to balance the budget, accumulating a surplus, which hadn't been done since Lyndon B. Johnson. Besides a few minor military operations, during the Clinton administration, the United States wasn't ivolved in any major wars.

Late into his presidency, he faced impeachment for cheating on his wife and lying about it. In hindsight, although it wasn't right for him to lie to the American people like that, it wasn't worth the impeachment trials. Although the House of representives voted to impeach him, the Senate did not, so he remained in office. Despite his impeachment trials, Clinton remained popular, with his highest approval ratings occuring on the same day the House voted to impeach him.
