“The divide of race has been America's constant curse. Each new wave of immigrants gives new targets to old prejudices. Prejudice and contempt, cloaked in the pretense of religious or political conviction, are no different. They have nearly destroyed us in the past. They plague us still. They fuel the fanaticism of terror. They torment the lives of millions in fractured nations around the world. These obsessions cripple both those who are hated and, of course, those who hate, robbing both of what they might become.”
- Bill Clinton
William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton (1946 - ) served as the 42nd President of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Inaugurated at age 46, the third youngest president, he is the first president of the baby boomer generation. Clinton left office with the highest end-of-office approval rating of any U.S. president since World War II and has continued to achieve high ratings in public opinion polls.
