Pubblicità

William Jefferson Clinton, nato con il nome di William Jefferson Blythe III, detto Bill , è un politico statunitense, 42º presidente degli Stati Uniti d'America dal 1993 al 2001.

Con i suoi 46 anni al momento dell'elezione, è stato il terzo presidente più giovane di sempre. Il suo mandato è iniziato alla fine della Guerra fredda, ed è stato il primo presidente della generazione dei baby boomer. Clinton è stato descritto come un "New Democrat" e le sue scelte politiche hanno seguito la cosiddetta "Third Way" di centro, che concilia le tradizionali posizioni di destra sull'economia con una politica sociale progressista.

Nato e cresciuto in Arkansas, ha frequentato la Georgetown University, dove ottenne una borsa di studio tramite la quale frequentò l'Università di Oxford. Durante il periodo universitario divenne leader studentesco e coltivò la sua passione per la musica. Sposato con Hillary D. Rodham, entrambi i Clinton hanno ottenuto la laurea in legge dall'Università di Yale, dove si sono conosciuti e hanno iniziato a frequentarsi. Quando era governatore dell'Arkansas, ha revisionato il sistema scolastico statale ed è stato Presidente della National Governors Association .

Eletto Presidente nelle presidenziali del 1992, durante il suo mandato gli Stati Uniti hanno vissuto uno dei più lunghi periodi di pace e prosperità economica di sempre. Tra i suoi provvedimenti più importanti bisogna ricordare il North American Free Trade Agreement e la controversa politica Don't ask, don't tell che doveva rappresentare un passo intermedio verso la piena integrazione dei militari omosessuali.

Dopo un vano tentativo di riforma del sistema sanitario nel 1994 il Partito Repubblicano ottenne il controllo del Congresso per la prima volta dopo 40 anni. Due anni dopo, Clinton venne eletto per un secondo mandato, durante il quale riuscì a far passare una riforma del welfare e lo State Children's Health Insurance Program, che ha fornito assistenza sanitaria a milioni di bambini. Nel 1998 venne sottoposto ad impeachment per falsa testimonianza e ostruzione della giustizia dopo lo Scandalo Lewinsky, ma venne assolto dal Senato. Negli ultimi tre anni del suo mandato, il bilancio federale ha avuto un avanzo primario positivo.

Clinton ha lasciato la carica con il più alto indice di gradimento mai ottenuto da un presidente dopo la seconda guerra mondiale. Da quel momento, è stato impegnato in discorsi pubblici e programmi umanitari. In accordo con la sua vocazione filantropica, Clinton ha creato la William J. Clinton Foundation con lo scopo di sensibilizzare la popolazione su questioni d'interesse mondiale come la prevenzione dell'AIDS e il riscaldamento globale. Nel 2004 ha pubblicato la sua autobiografia My Life .

È rimasto attivo in politica facendo campagna elettorale per i candidati democratici, in particolare per la moglie nel 2008 e poi per Barack Obama nel 2008 e nel 2012. Nel 2009 è stato nominato Inviato speciale delle Nazioni Unite per Haiti, e dopo il terremoto del 2010 ha formato, insieme al suo successore George W. Bush il Clinton Bush Haiti Fund . Anche dopo aver lasciato la carica continua a godere di un elevato consenso.

Frasi Bill Clinton

„We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.“

—  Bill Clinton
1990s, Context: All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it. State of the Union address http://millercenter.org/president/clinton/speeches/speech-3440 (24 January 1995)

„We need each other. All of us, we need each other. We don't have a person to waste.“

—  Bill Clinton
1990s, A Place Called Hope (16 July 1992), Context: It is time to heal America. And so we must say to every American: Look beyond the stereotypes that blind us. We need each other. All of us, we need each other. We don't have a person to waste. And yet for too long politicians have told the most of us that are doing all right that what's really wrong with America is the rest of us. Them. Them, the minorities. Them, the liberals. Them, the poor. Them, the homeless. Them, the people with disabilities. Them, the gays. We've gotten to where we've nearly "them"ed ourselves to death. Them and them and them. But this is America. There is no them; there's only us. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice, for all. "A Place Called Hope" (July 16, 1992)

„A preemptive action today, however well-justified, may come back with unwelcome consequences in the future.“

—  Bill Clinton
2000s, Context: A preemptive action today, however well-justified, may come back with unwelcome consequences in the future. And because … I've done this. I've ordered these kinds of actions — I don't care how precise your bombs and your weapons are, when you set them off, innocent people will die.

„There is no real difference between selfish and selfless“

—  Bill Clinton
2010s, Context: I want to leave my daughter, and my grandchildren I hope to have and all these young people, a better world. And I think the reason you should do things for other people at bottom is selfish. There is no real difference between selfish and selfless if you understand how the world works. We all tied together. [... ] Everytime you cut off somebody else's opportunity you shrink your own horizon.

„When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly.“

—  Bill Clinton
1990s, Context: When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly. That is, when we set up this country, abuse of people by Government was a big problem. So if you read the Constitution, it's rooted in the desire to limit the ability of — Government's ability to mess with you, because that was a huge problem. It can still be a huge problem. But it assumed that people would basically be raised in coherent families, in coherent communities, and they would work for the common good, as well as for the individual welfare.
