William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton is an American politician who served from 1993 to 2001 as the 42nd President of the United States. Inaugurated at age 46, he was the third-youngest president. He took office at the end of the Cold War, and was the first president from the baby boomer generation. Clinton has been described as a New Democrat. Many of his policies have been attributed to a centrist Third Way philosophy of governance. Before becoming president, he was the Governor of Arkansas for five terms, serving from 1979 to 1981 and from 1983 to 1992. He was also the state's Attorney General from 1977 to 1979. Born and raised in Arkansas, Clinton became both a student leader and a skilled musician. He is an alumnus of Georgetown University, where he was a member of Kappa Kappa Psi and Phi Beta Kappa and earned a Rhodes Scholarship to attend the University of Oxford.

SWING STATE redefines the phrase "behind the scenes." Where political documentaries were once limited to bleak, coffee-stained campaign offices, SWING STATE breaks down the final barrier, taking one giant leap into the home of the candidate. Focused primarily on the 2006 Ohio Governor's race, a contest widely considered to have drastic implications for the outcome of the 2008 Presidential elections, SWING STATE tells the story of career politician Lee Fisher, who, with family in tow, campaigns for Ohio Lieutenant Governor, alongside Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate and U. S. Congressman Ted Strickland. What makes SWING STATE most unique, however, is the perspective of Lee's son Jason, one of the film's directors. As a 14 year old, Jason filmed his father's bitter, razor-thin loss for Ohio Governor in 1998. Jason's intimate, piercing footage is woven into the film's current telling of the 2006 race; a race in which we observe a man, through the eyes of his son, putting it all on the line for one last shot at his dream. Over the course of 6 months, the Fisher family learns that, once again, politics can be cruel and exhausting, but it can also serve to bring people together. Lee's ambition to make a difference that is "deep and wide" is what makes possible the most memorable family experience they have ever shared. The road to the White House in 2008 runs directly through the Ohio Statehouse in 2006. The lives of all Ohioans - all Americans - will be affected by this one election. And one family will show us the way. Featuring interviews with Bill Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, John Kerry, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chuck Schumer, Bill Richardson and many more. Vote SWING STATE in '08, it's the obvious choice.
