From 1993 to 2001, Bill Clinton served as the 42nd president of the United States.
Prior to the White House, he was governor of Arkansas and the state's attorney general.
Clinton, a Democrat, was 46 years old when he defeated George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot in the 1992 presidential election. That made him the third-youngest president in US history. He won re-election in 1996, defeating Bob Dole.
During his second term, Clinton became the second US president ever to be impeached. The House of Representatives approved two articles of impeachment against Clinton, accusing him of lying under oath and obstructing justice in an effort to conceal a sexual relationship with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton's Senate trial ended with an acquittal.
In October 2021, Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center for a non-Covid-related infection. He is "on the mend" and "in good spirits," according to a statement from Clinton spokesman Angel Urena.
