Joe Lockhart assumed the role of Bill Clinton's press secretary in October 1998, just in time for a White House nightmare: Clinton's impeachment trial. In addition to the impeachment, he handled such stories as the bombing of Kosovo and the custody battle for Elian Gonzalez.

Currently, Lockhart lives in Washington DC and is president of the consulting firm Glover Park Group.
