William Clinton is a fancy rat. He was born and raised in Seattle, and somehow wound up in Kansas City. He's not really sure how it happened. He's not really sure of a lot of things. He and Karl are dating, and since the beginning of their relationship, Clinton has learned a lot about what it means to be a real functioning person instead of drifting around and sleeping in gutters for no good reason.
Clinton is very attentive to politics. When he was young, he wanted to run for public office but decided that he'd never be able to with his birth name. He couldn't figure out what to change his name to, and so decided it was best not to run. Maybe he'll be a farmer someday.
