The 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, celebrates his birthday today. The Big Dawg is now 66 years young. Happy birthday, Bubba!
William Jefferson Clinton, the pride of Hope, Ark., remains the only Democrat to win two full White House terms since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history, and left office extremely popular, despite the whole impeachment thing.
Hey, no one’s perfect, right?
His wife, Hillary Clinton, is currently U.S. Secretary of State, and their daughter, Chelsea, says she’s considering running for office too someday.
Whatever she does, she’ll make mom and dad proud.
These days, Bill runs the extremely influential Clinton Global Initiative and remains a leading voice for progressive economic and social policies.
Expect to see him featured prominently at the Democratic National Convention in a few weeks, making the case for President Obama’s reelection.
Here’s wishing Clinton – who reportedly went vegan after his bypass surgery – a very happy 66th. A veggie burger to celebrate, perhaps?
