In recent weeks, Clinton was overseeing the United Nations aid mission in Haiti after a January 12 earthquake struck there.

Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States from 1993 to 2001. He was the third-youngest president. Only Theodore Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy were younger when entering office. He became president at the end of the Cold War, and as he was born in the period after World War II, he is known as the first Baby Boomer president. His wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is currently the United States Secretary of State.
