    LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) -- The summer travel season is in full swing, the Clinton Presidential Library is drawing 2,000 visitors a day, and a new tourism phenomenon -- the "Billgrimage" -- is being seen 115 miles away in the town of Hope, Arkansas. "People are coming from the library saying they're making a Billgrimage to Arkansas; it's so cute," giggles Crystal Altenbaumer, director of the Clinton Birthplace museum in Hope. Among those on a recent "Billgrimage" was Ava Carter, a Democrat from Dallas, who convinced her Republican travel partner, James D. Stearns, to give their summer trip a Clinton...

    Ex-President Bill Clinton said Monday that he had to assure world leaders that there was nothing seriously wrong with America after the Congress impeached him in 1998. "During that time, a lot of world leaders would ask, 'What is going on? Is this serious?'" he told New York magazine. "I kept assuring them that nothing bad had happened to America," he recalled, "but that we periodically went through spasms." Interviewed while traveling in Africa, the ex-president claimed, "Africans saw [my impeachment] for exactly what it was: an abuse of power." "They got it here," he insisted. The magazine noted that...

    SPRINGFIELD -- The United States' pre-war intelligence on Iraq was dead wrong, according to the president's Commission on Weapons of Mass Destruction. Despite the report, Missouri's senior U.S. senator says the decision to go to war was still the right one. Bond is a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence. In an interview here on Thursday, Bond said the bad intelligence came from an archaic system based on assumptions rather than thorough analysis and human intelligence. He also placed much of the blame on the Clinton administration. The commission’s report says the harm done to American credibility will take...

    Six years after he became the only elected U.S. president ever to be impeached, Bill Clinton is now almost "beloved," says Newsweek's Howard Fineman. "Whatever desk he occupies, he will always be center stage," he gushed to MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Wednesday night. "That is the way [Clinton] is." Commenting on the ex-president's surgery this week, the Newsweek scribe added: "Everybody wishes him well. He's almost reached the beloved stage." Writing on Newsweek's web site two days later, Fineman still sounded like the president of the Bill Clinton fan club. "I imagine it’s tough, even for Clinton’s enemies, to hate...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- In a prime-time television outburst, Bill Clinton ripped old nemesis Kenneth Starr and what the former president portrayed as a gullible media eager to report every ''sleazy thing" leaked from a prosecutor bent on bringing him down. The exchange came in an interview with ABC news anchorman Peter Jennings that aired Thursday night, hours after Clinton opened his $165 million presidential library. Clinton blasted Starr and spoke disdainfully of a media that he suggested was complicit in a scheme to ruin his presidency. ''No other president ever had to endure someone like Ken Starr," Clinton said....

    The Kerry campaign is calling on a heavy hitter from its bench: Former President Bill Clinton plans to hit the trail for the Democratic presidential hopeful Monday in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. "I'm going out tomorrow," Clinton told ABC News' Diane Sawyer today in an exclusive interview airing today on "World News Tonight," Monday on "Good Morning America," and Thursday on "Primetime." Both campaigns are relying on star power in the final days. The Bush campaign has California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger stumping for the president in Ohio this week.

    Bill Clinton has a unique form of ADD — he is disordered when he does not get enough attention. Like a headlight reflector on the highway, he cannot shine unless a light illuminates him. Like a solar battery, he cannot generate energy unless he basks in the outside stimulus of sunlight. And like a cold-blooded creature, he cannot internally generate body warmth, but relies upon the sun to provide it. Just remember how fully he realized himself standing before Congress and basking in applause, spotlights and public adulation. He chose a profession in which the band rarely stops playing and...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said in an interview broadcast on Tuesday the United States should exercise patience in its standoff with Iraq to help build allied support for a potential strike. Clinton told NBC's Today Show he did not believe war in Iraq was inevitable so long as Iraqi President Saddam Hussein opts to disarm. While stressing a second U.N. resolution was not strictly necessary, the former president said the United States ought to take pains to repair a growing rift with allies Germany, France and Russia over the need for war. "What I hope will...
