Bill Clinton

What if Bill Clinton had 90 minutes to give a no-holds-barred TED talk? That's the scene in "Bill Clinton Hercules," a one-man show starring Kansas City actor Bob Paisley. Hear about the  off-hand comment that inspired the play and how Paisley evokes the 42nd president. 

Want to see "Bill Clinton Hercules"? The show opens at the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre on Wednesday, May 6 for a 4-day run. For tickets and information, click here.

On Monday's Up to Date, we sit down with Al From, author of The New Democrats and the Return to Power.  He joins Steve Kraske for a look at the history and future of the Democratic Party.  As founder of the Democratic Leadership Council he ushered in a new breed of Democrat with Bill Clinton's administration.

Former president Bill Clinton was in Kansas City to receive the 2013 Harry S. Truman Good Neighbor Award, which is presented every year on President Truman's birthday.

Clinton told the 1,000 persons attending the luncheon that the award was a fitting reminder of a president who was an active force in creating the United Nations and the Marshall Plan.

Perhaps the trajectory of the political lives of Bill and Hillary Clinton can be understood only through the prism of their personal relationship.
