Clinton Library Visit Part of Our "Mini-Vacation"

Cat and I decided we'd get out of town for a trip together, so we decided to go to Little Rock, Arkansas mainly to visit the Clinton Presidential library there. Other people take trips to the lake or beach. We go to political and historical sites.

The Clinton Library was very impressive. The building is designed to look like a bridge to go along with the theme for Clinton's successful "re-election" campaign: The Bridge to the 21st Century."

The library includes a replication of theCabinet Room,

And theOval Office

President's get many gifts from citizens and foreign visitors. This puppet was one of my favorites: Clinton Hand Puppet

The were even gifts of chess sets, so I HAD to include these.
