George W. Bush
it was bill clinton because bush was in office from 2000 to 2008 and obama is in the possition now so it was clinton in 1997.
Are you people kidding? It wasn't THAT long ago! Bill Clinton (Klintoon) 1993-2001. To those who said Bush, he was 2001-2009. Remember that the ELECTIONS were in 1992 and 2000, but the winners took office in '93 and '01.
