Summary: William Jefferson Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States is undoubtedly the greatest American enigma of our age--a dark horse that captured the White House, fell from grace and was resurrected as an elder statesman whose popularity rises and falls based on the day's sound bytes. John Gartner's In Search of Bill Clinton unravels the mystery at the heart of Clinton's complex nature and why so many people fall under his spell
