PRESIDENT WILLIAM J. "BILL" CLINTON
The 41st U.S. President pens a kind note and signs this political cartoon to an admirer, in black ink
Inscribed Cartoon Signed: "To Doug Wallace/With thanks/Bill Clinton 2-3-83," in black ink. One page. 14x11. Reproduction of a cartoon by George Fisher of the Arkansas Gazette depicting Governor Clinton in the driver's seat of a pick-up truck he had just bought, speeding away from "Honest George's Used Vehicles." The other four vehicles on the lot were a baby carriage, a three-wheeler, bicycle with training wheels, and a ten-speed bicycle. This cartoon appeared at that time indicating the Governor was moving forward full-speed ahead. 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 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. As of 2015, William “Bill” Clinton has appeared 52 times in the cover of TIME Magazine since 1992, sharing the cover with former U.S. President George W. Bush in the July 23rd edition. Fine condition.
