Gov. Bill Clinton defined himself and his party’s agenda in his acceptance speech on the final night of the 1992 Democratic National Convention. He called himself a product of America’s middle class, and pledged not to forget the middle class when he is elected. During the latter half of his speech, Gov. Clinton discussed the issues he intends to take up as president, including education, the environment, and health care, and contrasted his agenda with that of President Bush. Following his remarks, his family joined him on stage to acclamation from the convention delegates, accompanied by the song, “Don’t Stop Believing,” by Fleetwood Mac. Prior to his speech, a video presentation detailed Gov. Clinton’s modest beginnings in Arkansas and the highlights of his political career. close
