Nearly eight years after leaving the White House, former President Bill Clinton is still working to change the lives of people around the world. In the first interview about his new book, Giving, President Clinton talks to Oprah about how just one person can make a difference in the lives of many.

He's still a major political figure, but does he ever miss the White House? "Yes and no. I was so thrilled when I got reelected because I knew I could only do eight years, that's what our Constitution calls for," he says. "And I always thought it was a waste of time to spend a day of the life you have wishing you could do something you can't do anymore. It's like, what if I'd been a professional basketball player and [it was already] 25 years after my career was over? It's just a waste of time. And I've enjoyed every part of my life and I love what I'm doing now. I'm really happy with it."
