What are Bill Clinton contributions to the world?

Giving the Chinese missile secrets. Like the ICBM.

I completely disagree with whoever made that outrageous assertion! There is no evidence whatsoever that President Clinton ever approved of giving the Chinese missile secrets! Unfortunately, there are still many Americans that refuse to give any credit to Clinton for all the wonderful things he achieved while in office and since! He ended a recession he inherited from George H.W. Bush in 1993, by raising taxes on the wealthy. That ushered in 6 years of incredible growth in the economy, including record surpluses and an end to deficit spending! In fact, when George W. Bush became President in 2001, he inherited a $137 Billion surplus which he promptly squandered on huge tax cuts to the wealth in 2001 & 2003, without paying for them!

Bill Clinton also dramatically decreased millions of people on welfare and back to work! He also reduced the size of the Federal Government for the first time in decades! He invested billion of dollars on expanding technology in the classrooms, including the internet and computers in the classrooms! He led the international fight in Bosnia and ended the war and atrocities committed by the Serbs! Unlike George Bush, who was despised by most of our allies, due to the unpopular Iraqi War, Bill Clinton enjoyed widespread popularity, especially in Europe and Africa!

Bill Clinton proved beyond a doubt, that Democrats are much better stewards of American taxpayer dollars than the GOP-He gave us record surpluses and we were on track to finally eradicate the national debt had he stayed in office, which of course, he couldn't! Since he left office, he founded the Bill Clinton Foundation, and has successfully raised billions to help millions of people around the world, including Aids and malaria relief! He led efforts to help those affected from the Asian tsunami and the earthquake in Haiti! What a wonderful humanitarian Bill Clinton has been in public life!!!

On December 21, 2000, President Clinton signed into law the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 which abrogated the Banking Act of 1933 (also known as the Glass-Steagall Act) and thereby laid the legal foundation for the financial debacle from which the US and the world is now struggling to recover.

How much surplus did the US have when Clinton left office?

Clinton ran deficits throught all 8 years of his term, and one can go to the US Treasury Department and looking through the history of the total outstanding debt through Clintons term.

Every year Clinton was in office, the total national debt continued to climb.

How Clinton managed to claim a surplus was that while the general operating budgets ran deficits but Clinton borrowed from numerous off budget funds to make the on budget fund a surplus.

For example, in 2000, Clinton claimed a $230B surplus, but Clinton borrowed

$152.3B from Social Security

$30.9B from Civil Service Retirement Fund

$18.5B from Federal Supplementary Medical insurance Trust Fund

$15.0B from Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund

$9.0B from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund

$8.2B from Military Retirement Fund

$3.8B from Transportation Trust Funds

$1.8B from Employee Life Insurance & Retirement fund

$7.0B from others

Total borrowed from off budget funds $246.5B, meaning that his $230B surplus is actually a $16.5B deficit.

($246.5B borrowed - $230B claimed surplus = $16.5B actual deficit).

If there is ever a true surplus, then the national debt will go down.

the national debt did not go down one year during the Clinton administration.

Why was Bill Clinton impeached?

Clinton was impeached by The House Of Representatives, because of allegedly lying about a sexual encounter he had with a junior member of the White House staff. What really got him into trouble was lying about it under oath.

He was acquitted of the charge by the Senate.

Why did Bill Clinton get married if he did not possess the restraint not to have an affair?

To run for political office . . . . In the US it is very difficult to successfully run for a political office (especially a high political office) unless you're married.

That is something you will have to ask him. It is stated in many psychology texts that many times a man who is not brought with a father figure in the home and only by women, particularly many women may end up having serial partners or even sexual addictions problems. Bill was unfortunately raised without his father (who I believe died when he was very young) or any father figure for that matter. This is a question that I would love to ask MANY guys!!! I would say his affair is a lack of confidence!!! He might have thought at the time, that he did have the restraint he needed. After all, he was married a long time ago. Maybe he didn't realize how ugly Hillary would get. LOL I have no idea why people think other famous people such as a President is any different than the rest of us. Many marriages in politics are marriages of convenience and serve to empower the person running in senate or for presidency. Now Nancy Reagan did love her husband and was very loyal to him. The Kennedy men were extremely unfaithful to their wives, but, they were good men and JFK was a fantastic president. Cheating always brings a price ... Kenny paid for it, Clinton paid for it, etc. I had no problem with Bill Clinton cheating (knew he was just human) but had a problem with him glaring into the cameras and lying to the American people and putting the blame on Monica. Although not too bright, (Monica was old enough to know what she was getting into) he was not a man about owning up to his large part in their relationship and hung her out to dry. He did eventually tell his wife the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Refreshing isn't it! Marcy

What is a word that covers nieces and nephews like siblings does brother and sisters?

Nibling denotes gender neutral noun of the son or daughter of a http://www.answers.com/topic/sibling, more commonly known as a http://www.answers.com/topic/cousin or a http://www.answers.com/topic/cousin. The term was coined to accommodate those instances where the gender of the child of a sibling is unknown such as when a sibling is first pregnant with a child. It is also used to avoid awkward inclusive gender-parsed phrases. A statement such as "I am going to visit my nephew and niece this weekend" can be easily reduced to "I am going to visit my niblings this weekend". It is a very aesthetically pleasing term given its rhyming nature, symmetry to the term sibling and its dimension of meaning. The term conjures images of small cute creatures that affectionately nibble one out of house and home.

Did president Clinton get impeached as president?

Short answer: yes.

The word "impeach" simply means to bring formal charges against. He was charged with perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice, which are both felonies, for giving false testimony to the special prosecutor appointed by the US Attorney General.

After the House brings articles of impeachment, the Senate tries the case. A two-thirds majority is required for conviction. The vote was 45-55 on the perjury charge and 50-50 on the obstruction of justice charge, so there was no conviction and he remained in office for the rest of his term.

Why is Bill Clinton a Demagogue?

He's a demagogue in the eyes of the Left wing because he lasted 8 years, made a political comeback in 1996 after losing his Congress in 1994, and ended his presidency with high approval ratings. At least, this is what his supporters say. Quite frankly, I think he's a demagogue to them because he's the best thing the Democrat party has produced since Kennedy (which doesn't say too much for the Democrat party of the last fifty years).
