Bill Clinton served as the 42nd President of the United States of America and served over one of the largest economic expansions in United States history. Sadly, his term is now best remembered as one full of controversy due to his relationship with Monica Lewinsky that caused an impeachment trial due to his lying about the situation. Even though his relationship has nothing to do with politics, it has now put a stain on his term.
After the Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years, Clinton was impeached for perjury, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power, but was acquitted by the U.S. States Senate and remained in office to complete his term.
Since leaving office, Clinton has been involved in several humanitarian works. He created the William J. Clinton Foundation to help prevent HIV/AIDs and global warming. In 2004, he released an autobiography titled "My Life."

The road to tyranny, we must never forget, begins with the destruction of the truth.
Remarks at the Dedication of the Thomas J. Dodd Archives and Research Center at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut
The fights I fought... cost a lot --the fight for the assault-weapons ban cost 20 members their seats in Congress. The NRA is the reason the Republicans control the House.

You need to know that a member of Congress who refuses to allow the minimum wage to come up for a vote made more money during last year's one-month government shutdown than a minimum wage worker makes in an entire year.
Because Israel believes, when it comes right down to it America is the only big country that cares whether they live or die. That's why I can say, give up the West Bank, because the Israelis knew that if the Iraqi or the Iranian army came across the Jordan river, I would personally grab a rifle, get in a ditch, and fight and die, and I would.
