William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton (born William Jefferson Blythe III in 1946) is an American politician who served as the forty-second President of the United States (1993—2001), the fortieth and forty-second Governor of Arkansas (1979—1981 and 1983—1992), and the fiftieth Attorney General of Arkansas (1977—1979).

His Administration as President saw the passing of welfare reform, the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program.

He has high approval ratings compared to other Presidents out of office.
