Clinton’s Best Moments in Office

George Bush’s best moment in office was catching a fish. Bill Clinton had more important items to discuss: JIM LEHRER: As we sit here right now, Mr. President, is this the best moment of your presidency? PRESIDENT CLINTON: Oh, no, I won’t say that. I don’t know. So many things have happened here at home […]
