Bill Clinton is the embodiment and epitome of American politics in the postmodern, mediated age. Clinton_s able marshaling of images, which allowed him to retain popularity and position when faced with compelling obstacles, marks him as the preeminent figure in a fluid and fluctuating era of image-politics. Constructing Clinton: Hyperreality & Presidential Image-Making in Postmodern Politics pays particular attention to the collection of disparate, sometimes connected, often random images that create a site of political meaning we know as «Bill Clinton, former president of the United States.» Through analyses of unique image texts _ including The Man from Hope, The War Room, Primary Colors, MTV_s Biorhythms, and PBS_ The American President _ Constructing Clinton focuses on the image of Bill Clinton as it was defined by and trapped in the hyperreality so characteristic of contemporary presidential politics.
