Clinton’s White House Bio

In some random surfing today, I came across Bill Clinton's Bio on the site. It says:

During the administration of William Jefferson Clinton, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well being than at any time in its history.

My question: do they allow the presidents to write their own bios?

  1. Even though there's some wonderful spin, I really doubt he wrote:

    In 1998, as a result of issues surrounding personal indiscretions with a young woman White House intern, Clinton was the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

  2. I'd say that's a pretty positive spin on an impeachment...

    It's sad, really, that the last two presidents have been such a disappointment. I can't say much for or against Bush Sr, cause I wasn't old enough then, but what happened to the great presidents you read about in textbooks?

  3. Um, it happens to be true. No, really, it is. Just look at the data. The longest period of this country's economic expansion was during Clinton's presidency.

  4. The thing about economics is that it takes a long time for one president's actions to affect the economy. Clinton may have had the good fortune to come into the presidency during the rise of the technology economy, but he was still there for the beginning of its fall.
