Bill Clinton inscribes a pamphlet.
Pamphlet inscribed and signed: "To John Kelley/with appreciation/Bill Clinton/New Year/2002", 16p, 6x9. "Address by William Jefferson Clinton, Harvard University, November 19, 2001." Clinton's speech, an overview of the international situation, concludes with these words: "In short, we all have to change. The world's poor cannot be led by people like Mr. bin Laden who think they can find their redemption in our destruction. But the world's rich cannot be led by people who play to our short-sided [sic] selfishness and pretend that we can forever claim for ourselves what we deny to others. So my message is this: we live in a world without walls. We will have to defeat those who want to destroy it. We will have to do more to help everybody become a part of it. But most important, in our hearts we must make the world a home for all its children." Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992), Bill Clinton was the first Democrat reelected President since FDR. He served from 1993-2001 and was the only elected U.S. President to be impeached. 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. Nor was his support based solely on personal charm. 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. Fine condition.
