The Henry Ford

Democrats selected Arkansas governor William Jefferson Clinton as their presidential candidate in 1992. The 46-year-old Clinton chose 44-year-old Al Gore, Jr., Senator from Tennessee, as his running mate. The pair garnered enough votes in a three-way race to defeat the Republican and incumbent President George Bush and independent candidate Ross Perot. Clinton became the first president from the baby-boom generation.
