This American Experience program explores the fascinating story of an American president who rose from a broken childhood in Arkansas to become one of the most successful politicians in history and one of the most complex and conflicted characters to ever stride across the public stage. Featuring unprecedented access to scores of Clinton insiders, including Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers, Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, Deputy Chief of Staff Harold Ickes, as well as interviews with foreign leaders, members of the Republican opposition, childhood friends, staffers from his years as Arkansas governor, biographers, and journalists, the program investigates how Clinton made history even as he enraged his enemies and confounded his friends. Note: some mature content.
