HNN Podcasts: Bill Clinton's Legacy
What is Bill Clinton's legacy? It is undoubtedly too soon to say. But in an attempt to begin putting his presidency into historical perspective Hofstra University hosted a three-day conference featuring scholars and administration officials on Nov. 10, 11, and 12, 2005. (Every president from FDR to Clinton has been the subject of a Hofstra presidential conference.)
Dozens of panels assessed various aspects of his presidency. Their papers will eventually form the basis of a book published by Hofstra. In the meantime if you missed the conference you can click on the following HNN Podcast links to hear HNN's interviews with many of the participants.
