August 19, 1946: Bill Clinton’s Birthday
Former president Bill Clinton turns 68 today. The Georgetown, Oxford, and Yale alumnus served as the 42nd President of the United States from 1993 to 2001. Inaugurated at 46, Clinton was the third-youngest president and the first democrat since FDR to win a second term in the presidential office.
Bill Clinton first ran for office at only 28 years old and has lived much of his life in the public eye. To get a more more candid look at the life and times of America’s 42nd president, check out American Experience’s Bill Clintonphoto gallery.
