BILL CLINTON.
Book inscribed and signed: "To Hal Karr/with best wishes/Bill Clinton/2-97" as President, on half-title page, 178p, 5½x8¼, hardcover with dust jacket. His book, Between Hope and History: Meeting America's Challenges for the 21st Century, Random House, New York, 1996. First Edition. President Clinton has dated his signature February 1997, a significant month in the Clinton presidency, the first full month of his second term.
 
On the evening of February 4, 1997, before a Joint Session of Congress, President Clinton delivered his State of the Union address, two weeks after his second inauguration. In part: "Over the last 4 years, we have brought new economic growth by investing in our people, expanding our exports, cutting our deficits, creating over 11 million new jobs, a 4-year record. Now we must keep our economy the strongest in the world. We here tonight have an historic opportunity. Let this Congress be the Congress that finally balances the budget. [Applause] Thank you. In 2 days, I will propose a detailed plan to balance the budget by 2002. This plan will balance the budget and invest in our people while protecting Medicare, Medicaid, education, and the environment...Balancing the budget requires only your vote and my signature. It does not require us to rewrite our Constitution. I believe it is both unnecessary and unwise to adopt a balanced budget amendment that could cripple our country in time of economic crisis and force unwanted results, such as judges halting Social Security checks or increasing taxes. Let us at least agree, we should not pass any measure-no measure should be passed that threatens Social Security...." Less than a year later, on February 2, 1998, President Clinton signed the first balanced budget since 1969.
 
February 28, 1997 was the day, according to White House records, Monica Lewinsky attended the taping of the President's weekly radio address. To be aired the next day, the President told the nation "what we must do to strengthen our effort to keep drugs away from our neighborhoods and out of our children's lives." Ms. Lewinsky, wearing a navy blue dress from the Gap, was at the White House from 5:48 to 7:07 P.M. The President was in the Roosevelt Room (where the radio address was taped) from 6:29 to 6:36 p.m., then moved to the Oval Office, where he remained until 7:24 p.m. He had no telephone calls while Ms. Lewinsky was in the White House. Ms. Lewinsky attended the radio address at the President's invitation (relayed by his secretary, Betty Currie), then had her photo taken with the President. Ms. Lewinsky had not been alone with the President since she had worked at the White House. As belated Christmas gifts, the President gave her a hat pin and a special edition of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass. According to Lewinsky's August 28, 1998 testimony before Kenneth Starr, she and the President had a sexual encounter that evening, their first in nearly 11 months. The stained navy blue dress, which she kept, was the evidence. In testimony given on August 17, 1998, President Clinton had acknowledged "inappropriate intimate contact" with Ms. Lewinsky on February 28, 1997. Fine condition.
