This site has a one or two page, concise summary of political events for each century since 1900. Written by a Russian historian. Great for boning up on history and answering "when did that happen?" questions.

1946 is the birth year of America's 42nd President Bill Clinton who, over the years, has earned himself the reputation of a liberal and progressively-minded politician. The only stain on his otherwise impeccable public image was the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

ROTFLMAO! After composing myself I thought I'd point this statement out to those of you who might be inclined to review this History as unbiased. I went to 1946 to read about the year I was born, sure hate sharing it with Clintoon, but READ THE ABOVE STATEMENT, what rubbish.

In a similar vein, from 1983:

Reagan's stance made some politicians in America believe he was insane , but he stayed his tough course believing it was the only way to bring the Soviet Union to the negotiating table.

On March 10, the US President Ronald Reagan stunned and intimidated a Florida audience with his notorious Evil Empire speech where he described the Soviet Union as the focus of universal evil and Communism as a sad and ridiculous chapter in human history.

President Reagan often said that one should get involved in war not when he is too strong, but when he is too weak. Hence his very tough stand in dealing with Moscow. Reagan's stance made some politicians in America believe he was insane, but he stayed his tough course believing it was the only way to bring the Soviet Union to the negotiating table.

In 1998 America was rattled by a major scandal, which was immediately picked up everywhere keeping the rumor mill running for quite some time. As it happened, President Bill Clinton appeared to have a sexual relationship with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. In a traditionally puritan country like the United States, the news came like a bolt from the sky seriously sallying the President's image. Clinton initially tried hard to deny any extramarital affairs but was eventually overwhelmed by the weight of hard facts he just couldn't refute. The specter of impeachment started looming large over the Chief Executive, not for his fling with Lewinsky but because of lying under oath. Happily for Clinton, impeachment never came and Monica moved on from her humble secretarial job to gain a celebrity status. She profited immensely from her amorous escapades with her book selling in millions of copies, her radio and television appearances attracting nationwide audiences and advertising agencies hard on her heels pleading for an appearance. The problem is, however, that much as President Clinton has done for America's prosperity, he will now most likely be remembered for his scandalous fling with Monica…

" The problem is, however,that as much as President Clinton has done for Americas prosperity, he will now most likely be remembered for his scanalous fling with Monca."

Prosperity ? You mean his going into office in a upswing economy and leaving it in recession ?
Monica is not the only scandal I remember ! How about trashing the dignity of the White House. Well the list of damage that Ex-pervert of The United States has done to this country is not able to be measured !
Talk about a crock !

Now, why would you say a thing like that? Just because the guy signed up in the past few days, and posts what he considers to be a link to some good (albeit left-wing) information that paints Clinton as a never-impeached victim, and Reagan as insane, is no reason to think he's a commie-pinko...

On second thought, you do have a point ;0)

The year 1991 was the most tragic in the entire history of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics... By March, the process of disintegration had passed the point of no return and nothing could possibly be done to prevent the country's breakup. President Mikhail Gorbachev made a last-ditch attempt to remedy the situation by signing on August 20 a revised Union Treaty. Scheduled to return to Moscow from his Crimean retreat where he was vacationing with his family, Gorbachev was put under virtual arrest right in his Black Sea villa. In the morning of August 19, the state radio and television made a surprise announcement saying that the President was ill, his reforms in a dead end and full power reverting to the State Emergency Committee. Later in the day army troops were ordered into Moscow...
The leader of the biggest Soviet republic, the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin, spearheaded the public resistance to what appeared to be a full-blown coup. On August 20 protest rallies were held across Russia and elsewhere in the country. Part of the top military brass ignored the orders coming from the State Emergency Committee. The following day, realizing that their attempt had fallen though, the coup leaders flew down to the Crimea to tell the arrested President Gorbachev how sorry they were. The plotters were all arrested and shortly after that, Gorbachev returned to Moscow...
The further unraveling of the once united country and the federal government's inability to reverse the snowballing process of general disintegration prompted the leaders of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus to meet at the Viskuli state residence near Brest, and establish the Commonwealth of Independent States. The agreement said that the Soviet Union had ceased to exist as an independent political entity... On December 25 Mikhail Gorbachev resigned as the first and last Soviet President and, later that same day the Soviet flag flying over the Grand Kremlin Palace was lowered and replaced by the white, blue and red Russian tricolor...
