At the close of the 20th century, America has found itself in the heat of a culture war that has placed Christian Theism, Modernism, and Postmodernism into an intense conflict for dominance. After a review of biographical literature, news stories, and personal interviews, this study develops an interpretive biography of William Jefferson Clinton, concentrating particularly on the leadership strategies which he developed in response to the draft, his gubernatorial loss for re-election in 1980, Whitewater, womanizing, and the impeachment process. The correlation of the strategic leadership values of President Clinton with Postmodernism concludes that William Jefferson Clinton is closely aligned with Postmodern values.
