Abstract:

A paucity of scholarly works exists on the subject of how these familial and peer networks influence the childhood political and social milieu of future presidents. Since individual personality plays an important role in presidential decision-making, we suggest that understanding this setting is an important component in any understanding of presidential personality.

In beginning to address this absence, we propose an analysis into the childhood background of William Jefferson Clinton. We select this case study for two reasons: (1) there is a plethora of descriptive psycho-biographies of Clinton (Maraniss, 1996; Renshon, 1996), and (2) there are oral history interviews from individuals who were part of Clinton’s familial and childhood peer networks. The interviews used for this study are part of the Clinton History Project, a joint oral history study by the University of Arkansas and The Miller Center at the University of Virginia.

The researchers coded the data in the transcripts and placed this data into several categories. Using a text analysis program, we will test for tone and content in each subject. The independent variables include the interviewee’s gender, age, location (whether they were from Hope or Hot Springs), level of education, and their working relationship to him. The dependent variables include each subject’s relationship prior- and post-presidency.

The goal of this project is to shed light on influences on the personality of Bill Clinton. It should also serve as a foray into building a theoretical framework to show how early political familial and peer socialization influences presidential personality.
