Clinton’s departure from the state in 1992 had negative ramifications for Arkansas Democrats in terms of their arguably most important ongoing resource: the perception that the party was the incubator for political talent. The Democrats’ advantage in possessing more experienced political operatives and a “farm team” of prospective candidates was removed when Bill Clinton took to Washington some of his most able organizers, as well as those who would likely have become the next generation of Democratic statewide and congressional candidates. Some of those individuals would never return to the state.
Want to volunteer your time? The Clinton House Museum can always use the time and talents of those interested. We are looking for friendly faces to help make this experience memorable to our visitors.
