Iconic Photo Of Clinton Meeting JFK Gets A Fresh Update

As a teenager representing his home state of Arkansas at Boys Nation in 1963, Bill Clinton shook hands with then-President John F. Kennedy, creating an image that later became iconic when Clinton himself entered the White House.

Just over 50 years later, the photo has gotten a fresh update from Michael Catanachapodaca, who colorized the image and posted it on Reddit:

"That had a very profound impact on me," Clinton told ABC News of his brief meeting with Kennedy. "It was something that I carried with me always."

This post has been updated to include more information about the artist.
