*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Outstanding documentary showing the life of President Clinton. The man shall always remain as an enigma in history. His greatness as president is shown while at the same time we see him fall victim to a human weakness-an obsession with sex.

We hear the familiar terms that described him-Slick Willie, The Comeback Kid and we see why these terms were so appropriate given the circumstances of his birth, intelligence, governorship and attaining the ultimate prize- the U.S. presidency, something which he almost threw away.

The documentary showed that at his darkest hours, it was usually foreign events that brought him back from the political dead. Bringing peace to Ireland and clamping down on the Serbian slaughter of Muslims in Bosnia were well shown.

We see a man of great fortitude in his policies nearly brought down by something that others would call a personal problem, but he was our president.

Did his dysfunctional upbringing in the early years of turbulence in his life lead to his aggressive sexual activities?

Monica Lewinsky comes off as the type who could have appeared in the 1963 film-"Bye, Bye, Birdie." Thanks to her, we almost could have said "Bye, Bye Clinton." Did his actions cause so many people to vote for George W. Bush in 2000? The man seemed always to be caught up in scandal as in Whitewater along with his sexual activities.

To think of his accomplishments in balancing the budget, weakening the Republican argument against him by passing welfare reform, his failed attempt with his partner Hillary to provide national health insurance for, coming so close to brokering a peace deal between the Palestinians and Israelis, and his bouncing back to win the governorship of Arkansas after being defeated as the incumbent governor in 1980. This is definitely a fascinating story of a very complex individual.
