Shorten first term section?Edit

I've noticed that the First Term section is incredibly long. Given that this information is in the Presidency of Bill Clinton article, I think some of it should be trimmed, if possible. The length of it goes way beyond the readability of it, and could prevent it from becoming a Featured article (should it ever be nominated).

I don’t know what the situation with that section was when you wrote your commentin October, but right now(December 29,2018)I don’t see a word in it discussing the year 1995 of Clinton’s presidency. Needs to be in there.Rich (talk) 10:41, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

Make it obvious who is subject of the sentences in the part "Second term". Now it almost reads like it was Hillary who negotiated the Balanced Budget ActEdit

He negotiated the -> Bill Clinton negotiated the
In 1999 Clinton signed -> In 1999 he signed

In other words, change:

That year, Hillary Clinton shepherded through Congress the Adoption and Safe Families Act and two years later she succeeded in helping pass the Foster Care Independence Act. He negotiated the passage of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 by the Republican Congress. In October 1997, he announced he was getting hearing aids, due to hearing loss attributed to his age, and his time spent as a musician in his youth.[1] In 1999 Clinton signed into law the Financial Services Modernization Act also known as the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, which repealed the part of the Glass–Steagall Act that had prohibited a bank from offering a full range of investment, commercial banking, and insurance services since its enactment in 1933.[2]

Semi-protected edit request on 13 April 2019Edit

Please will you change the word 'accident' to read road traffic collision in the section referring to Clinton Senior death as this is the most accurate term as opposed to the archaic and inaccurate term accident, Templeronan (talk) 22:07, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Sergeant Angle, is that you? But seriously,   Not done, because for better or worse, "accident" is a common term, and it's the one that the source uses. It's not really Wikipedia's place to enforce changes (even good ones) in the language. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 03:01, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

Military Service post Vietnam War era?Edit

I recall reading a London "Times" report of one of Clinton's first Presidential election campaign, where when asked about his understanding of military affairs he mentioned inter alia he was "major of a national guard unit" - which if true would make him the first POTUS to have been a US National Guard officer since Truman. Is it supported in any published biography or documented detail?Cloptonson (talk) 18:02, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
