Book signed: "Bill Clinton", 6x9½. Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, by Bill Clinton. (N.Y: Alfred A. Knopf, 2007. Hardcover with dust jacket. First edition, first printing. Signed in black felt tip on title page. 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 FDR. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on February 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, elected a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York, sought the Democratic presidential nomination. In Giving, Bill Clinton extols the virtues of voluntarism. From the book one can infer what his priorities would be if he ever became First Spouse. Fine condition.
