President Clinton offers his vision for the country as we enter the twenty-first century. The president sees the nation poised on the edge of what he calls "the age of possibility." With eloquence and clarity, he details the broad values of opportunity, responsibility, and community that he regards as critical to helping America meet its challenges in the years ahead. He also discusses the experience of his presidency - mistakes made, lessons learned, and unprecedented successes - and his plan to lead America into the next millennium.
From Library Journal
President Clinton offers his vision of America, as is required of all incumbents and challengers during an election year. This work is better than the usual puffery written to produce votes through a rosy assessment of one's performance. Certainly, the president can be questioned about a number of his assertions. Have more and better jobs been created? Are there more police officers on patrol? Will the new welfare reform bill succeed without day-care and jobs provisions? However, he clearly articulates his agenda in a style reminiscent of his best speeches. Clinton's plans for environmental protection, deficit reduction, expanded educational and training opportunities, public/private partnerships, and peace and security are worthy of bipartisan support. But presidents are judged on their achievements far more than on their plans and visions. Recommended for public libraries. Purchase as demand warrants.?Karl Helicher, Upper Merion Twp.
