Summary Clinton is a four-part series that tells the fascinating story of an American president who rose from a broken childhood in Arkansas to become one of the most successful politicians in modern American history, and one of the most complex and conflicted characters to ever stride across the public stage.The program recounts a career full of accomplishment and rife with scandal, a marriage that would make history and create controversy, and a presidency that would define the crucial and transformative period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and 9/11.It follows Clinton across his two terms as he confronts some of the key forces that would shape the future, including partisan political warfare, and domestic and international terrorism. Most memorably, it explores how Clinton's character made history, even as it enraged his enemies and confounded his friends.The first episode follows the Clintons' bumpy road to the 1992 presidential victory, an amazing triumph over repeated scandals and setbacks. Although they have won the presidency, the Clintons have not yet won the country. In their moment of triumph, the first couple has no way of imagining the turmoil that lies ahead.
