Clinton and the JFK’s


On July 24, 1963, a 16-year old Bill Clinton met President John F. Kennedy while attending Boys Nation. This meeting inspired the future president to pursue a life in public service.



In 1998 president Bill Clinton met John F. Kennedy, Jr. Over the years the Clintons became good friends with the Kennedys. Often they would go sailing together and Jackie even gave Hillary tips about how to raise her child in the White House. Some people expected that JFK Jr would run for president after Clinton’s final term ended. Because of his tragic death, we will never know if that would have happened.
