William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton (born William Jefferson Blythe III; August 19, 1946) is an American politician who served as the 42nd President of the United States. He served from 1993 to 2001. As President, Clinton presided over the longest period of peacetime economic expansion in American history, successfully passed welfare reform, and created the State Children's Health Insurance Program, providing health coverage for millions of children.[1]

Clinton was later impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice in a scandal involving a White House intern, but was acquitted by the U.S. Senate and served his complete term of office.[2] The Congressional Budget Office reported a budget surplus between the years 1998 and 2000, the last three years of Clinton's presidency.[3] Clinton left office with the highest end-of-office approval rating of any U.S. president since World War II.[4][5]

Since then, he has been involved in public speaking and humanitarian work. Clinton created the William J. Clinton Foundation to promote and address international causes such as the prevention of AIDS and global warming.[6]
