Sale Price $765.00
Youthful 5x8 image, inscribed the year he was first elected Governor of Arkansas
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Jules Greenberg/Bill Clinton/1/15/79". B/w, 5x8. Bill Clinton, born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas in 1946, was Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat reelected President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on Feb. 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment brought against him: charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton's popularity stood at 67% at the end of his trial, however. Obviously, many Americans were willing to overlook his personal failings in an era of peace and prosperity. His accomplishments in office included a waiting period for gun purchases (the Brady Law), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, welfare reform and balancing of the federal budget. Clinton had previously co-written (with Al Gore) Putting People First (1992), and he would publish his successful autobiography, My Life, in 2004. Clinton's wife, former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, was a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York (2001-9), and became Secretary of State under President Obama, the man who had narrowly defeated her for her Party's Presidential nomination. Lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
