PBS documentary on Bill Clinton

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 15, 2012

American Experience is airing a four-hour documentary on Bill Clinton starting on Feb 20.

Clinton follows the president across his two terms as he confronted some of the key forces that would shape the future, including partisan political warfare and domestic and international terrorism, and as he struggled with uneven success to define the role of American power in a post-Cold War world. Most memorably, it explores how Clinton’s conflicted character made history, even as it enraged his enemies and confounded his friends.

The first twelve minutes of the film is available to watch on the PBS web site right now.
