Bundle of 2 - US Presidents - #42 - Clinton & His Election
Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Bill Clinton and a summary of issues which led up to his election. Both presentations together number 30 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

William Jefferson Clinton, born William Jefferson Blythe III, or Bill Clinton was the 42nd U.S. president, served in office from 1993 to 2001. Prior to that, the AR native and Democrat was governor of his home state. During Clinton’s time in the White House, America enjoyed an era of peace and prosperity, marked by low unemployment, declining crime rates and a budget surplus.

Clinton appointed a number of women and minorities to top government posts, including Janet Reno, the first female U.S. attorney general, and Madeleine Albright, the first female U.S. secretary of state. In the midst of these events, Clinton’s 2nd term was marred by scandal. On December 19, 1998, the U.S. House of Representatives impeached him for perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with a sexual relationship he had with White House intern Monica Lewinsky between late 1995 and early 1997.

On February 12, 1999, the U.S. Senate acquitted Clinton of the charges and he remained in office. He was the 2nd American president to be impeached. The 1st Andrew Johnson, was impeached in 1868 and also later acquitted.

End of Presentation

In 1991 incumbent President George H. W. Bush’s approval ratings reached 88%, the highest in presidential history up to that point. But by 1992, his ratings had sunk, and Bush became the 4th sitting U.S. president to lose re-election. Bush had alienated much of his conservative base by breaking his 1988 campaign pledge against raising taxes. The economy was also in a recession and Bush's perceived greatest strength, foreign policy, was regarded as much less important following the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the relatively peaceful climate in the Middle East after the defeat of Iraq in the Gulf War.

The 1996 election was the most lavishly funded up to that point. The combined amount spent by the 2 major parties for all federal candidates topped $2 billion, which was 33% more than what was spent in 1992. During this election the Democratic National Committee was accused of accepting donations from Chinese contributors. Non-American citizens are forbidden by law from donating to U.S. politicians, and 17 people were later convicted for the activity.
