He was still not ready to accept that his life would never be the same. Then, he was introduced to Hampar Kelikian, a doctor in Chicago who was helping veterans get back on their feet after being injured in war.

Clinton tried to paint him as a clone of Newt Gingrich, who was also criticized for his positions on social programs.

After capturing 49.2% of the vote, Clinton defeated Dole and Ross Perot with a landslide. During the campaign, critics doubted his ability to be president due to his advanced age.

He then joked that he was swapping wisecracks with late-night host David Letterman. After his loss to Clinton in the presidential election, he stated that it made it easier for him to move on. He noted that his decision to leave politics was influenced by the suggestions of his supporters. After all the partisan fights, maybe it’s time for people to look for more friendships.
