The scandal: Clinton was impeached after admitting — following numerous denials — to having sex with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in 1998.
Post-scandal: Acquitted of all charges and allowed to finish out his second presidential term, Clinton made a seamless recovery, leaving office with the highest approval rating of any post-World War II president. Now a humanitarian, Clinton focuses on AIDS prevention and global warning with his William J. Clinton Foundation and served as an ambassador for the U.S. in the release of two journalists from North Korea in 2009 and the Haiti earthquake recovery efforts. Clinton remains one of the highest-rated former presidents in public opinion polls.
