president clinton
President Clinton
Full Name: President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton
First Episode: "I Love Lisa"
Voiced by: Multiple

President Clinton served as the 42nd President and Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America for two terms, spanning the years 1993 - 2001. Previously, he had served as governor for his home state of Arkansas from 1979-1981, and again from 1983 - 1993. He ran as the candidate of the Democratic Party, defeating the incumbent president, Republican George H.W. Bush. During his first term, his administration worked with the Republican-controlled Congress to balance the budget, leading to economic prosperity during his second term. In 1998, he became the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives after allegedly lying about his sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky to a grand jury.

Clinton has been satirized numerous times on The Simpsons. Perhaps his most notable appearance was in the "Citizen Kang" segment of the episode "Treehouse of Horror VII", in which space aliens Kang and Kodos kidnap both Clinton and his 1996 election opponent, Bob Dole. The segment was well-recieved, and brought a few classic lines to the Simpsons lexicon, including "Go ahead, throw your vote away!" and "Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos."

Clinton's first appearance in the show was in the February 1993 episode "I Love Lisa" in which he and his wife Hillary are in the audience of Krusty the Clown's 29th Anniversary Show. Three months earlier, USA Today had erroneously reported that Clinton would be appearing in an episode "dealing with Krusty's campaign for higher office in Springfield". This plot, sans Clinton appearance, actually did occur nearly ten years later in the 2003 episode "Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington," in which Krusty runs for Congress and wins.

Interestingly, multiple voice actors have provided Clinton's voice in The Simpsons: Dan Castalleneta, the late Phil Hartman (who also impersonated him on Saturday Night Live), Harry Shearer (who frequently impersonates him on his radio show Le Show) and Karl Wiedergott.
