Clinton, who served as Arkansas' governor before being elected president, led the United States to the longest economic expansion in American history, including the creation of more than 22 million jobs. After leaving the White House, he established the Clinton Foundation, which has developed and implemented programs that aim to improve people’s health, strengthen local economies and protect the environment.

In addition to his work for the foundation, Clinton served as the top United Nations envoy for the Indian Ocean tsunami recovery effort and as the UN Special Envoy to Haiti.
