Bill Clinton turned 71 in August. Born William Jefferson Blythe III on August 19, 1946 in Hope, Arkansas, he started his career as the 50th Attorney General of Arkansas from January 03, 1977 to January 09, 1979. Some people might wonder why his name is Bill Clinton now when his biological father is named William Jefferson Blythe Jr., but here is the real reason why: His mother, Virginia Kelley remarried in 1950 to Roger Clinton Sr.
It wasn’t until Bill was 15 years old did he adopt his stepfather’s surname as a nice gesture toward his then stepfather. He also became the 40th and 42nd Governor of Arkansas from January 09, 1979 to January 19, 1981 and from January 11, 1983 to December 12, 1992, respectively. He became the 42nd President of the United States from January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001.
