About Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton net worth currently amounts to $80 million dollars. He was born in Arkansas, in 1946. In 1976, one year after creating a family with Hillary Rodham, he started serving as an attorney general in Arkansas. Two years later he became the youngest governor the state had witnessed in four decades. In 1992 Clinton was elected the President of the United States. 6 years later, after being reelected for the second term, he faced an impeachment, which was later acquitted by the upper house of parliament.
Bill lost his biological father before he was born. William Jefferson Blythe died in a fatal car accident, leaving his young wife, Virginia Cassidy Blythe, to raise their baby alone. Following this tragedy Bill’s mother has temporarily moved to Louisiana to finish her nursing education, leaving her newborn with Edith and Eldridge Cassidy. Back in the day the family lived on the tight budget and it was hard to believe that one day Bill Clinton net worth will reach $80 millions. Virginia returned to her son in 1950, right after getting her diploma. The same year she got married to Roger Clinton, who adopted a four-year-old Bill and gave him his family name.
Although neither Bill’s mother and grandparents, nor his step-father talked to him about God, the boy was deeply religious since an early age. As nobody from his family attended the church, every Sunday Clinton would dress up with his best closes and walk to Park Place Baptist Church alone. Fascinated with the music performed by the local gospel choir, the boy set his heart on learning to play some instrument. He started taking saxophone lessons while still studying at primary school and by the time he turned 16, Bill was widely regarded the best saxophonist in his hometown. It is hard to believe that music could have boosted Bill Clinton net worth to the same heights as his political career did, however, nobody who has heard him play would argue that he would have made a good musician.
During his childhood music has also served Clinton as a safe shelter from family problems. His step-father was a heavy drinker and used to act aggressively under the influence of alcohol. He did not avoid using fists not only against his lawful wife, but also against his preteen son, Bill’s step-brother. As a 14-year-old the future president already stood six foot tall and felt strong enough to withstand Roger’s attacks. Knowing that Bill will fight him back, his step-father stopped abusing his family members, but he did not let go of the bottle. His drinking problem was the reason Virginia divorced Roger in 1962. Today when Bill Clinton net worth amounts to $80 millions, all that is left from his uneasy childhood is some bad memories.
