Sale Price $1,360.00
White House Engraving, signed by Clinton three days after he was elected President
White House Engraving signed: "Bill Clinton/11-6-92" as President-elect. B/w, 8x6. Portrait of the White House by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, signed in black felt tip. 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, was elected a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York, sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008 and became Secretary of State in the Obama administration. The Presidential election of 1992 was held on November 3, but the Electoral College votes has not yet been officially tallied, and the Clinton would not take the Oath of Office until Inauguration Day, January20, 1993. Fine condition.
