  • Won the 1992 presidential election against George H.W. Bush (R) and H. Ross Perot (I), 1992-11-03, winning the electoral college vote by a wide margin despite having only 43% of the popular vote, which was nonetheless the largest portion due to the substantial three-way split.
  • Assumed office in 1993 (date?)

Positive Points

Negative Points

Debatable Points

  • The "don't ask, don't tell" policy on homosexuality in the military
  • The North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico
  • The Clintons were involved in a questionable real-estate deal prior to Clinton's presidency; this fact became the subject of an investigation and scandal. The Clintons were cleared of any wrongdoing, despite intensive scrutiny.


  • commentary at the Asheville Global Report criticizes Clinton's handling of Iraq during the later years of his administration

To be researched

  • Is this article related to what the Globalist article is about, or what? Is the 1994 article even substantially accurate? Need a clearer understanding of what happened in the Balkans and what Clinton's role (and the U.S.'s role) actually was.
