He was a solid 6'2 back in the 1990's

No way was he that high out of bed. Probably max 189. 6ft 2 peak and 6ft now seems right. He's lost more than average for his age.

Out of bed: 190-191cm
Before bed: 188-189cm

Strong 6ft2 peak wouldn't surprise me

james, i think clinton was in the 6'1.75-2" range when he was young, maybe when he was in the office around 6'1.25-1.5" and today 6'0-0.25"...
about Lincoln we don't know how tall he really was while for L.B.Johnson 6'4" is very optimistic, as i said on JFK's page...
he had almost 2" on JFK, who i supposed was 5'11.75"-6'0", so 6'1.5-2" is a fair listing for him between 1959-1968...maybe he reached 6'2.5" or also 6'2.75" when he was young, but i'm skeptical he ever been 6'4"...
6'4" perhaps was a noon measurement with thick shoes (like 1,5") on, when he was young...

Clinton traveled with Obama (first campaign) to my town and took pictures with everyone who would cough up a $1,500 donation for our President's first run at office. My friend's father was a high roller in the Democratic party so he bought his son and all of his friends (me included) picture time with Bill. I'll give Clinton every last inch of 6'2." (may have lost some height to age by now) He stands very relaxed and wears low-heel dress shoes that probably only add 1/2 inch. I've actually seen him listed at 6'3" quite a few times. That may be a stretch but he's definitely a tall guy and one of our nation's tallest Presidents. The tallest two are Abe Lincoln and L.B. Johnson who were both 6'4." L.B. Johnson looks HUGE in Youtube clips about the Vietnam war. When he was pictured in Vietnam, he looked like he was 7'0" tall next to the local politicians. That leads me to an interesting fact to end on. I heard, now this is totally unconfirmed, that only Navy SEALS 5'10" and under were allowed to go to Vietnam on missions where they tried to blend in with natives. Supposedly, anything taller would have been an obvious giveaway. I wonder if this is really true?!

He really did look 6ft2-6ft3 back in the day. His current height is hard to pin down. He can look 6ft1 range at times and other times barely 6ft
james said on 20/Sep/14
If he's 6'0 now than Bush Jr has to be 5'10.5 judging by that presidents gathering in the oval office he was clearly 2 inches taller standing next to W
Marcus Hickman said on 18/May/14
i'm 5' 10.5-5' 11". Bill Clinton stood a solid 6' 2" back in the day, I would say 6' 0.5" today, standing next to 6' 1" Barack Obama.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 5/Apr/14
Shows that you can lose 2 inches of height by 60 I guess
truth said on 2/Jan/14
I think 188cm before and now 184cm.
Mr. R said on 11/Dec/13
I've met him twice. The first time he was just over 6-2 in 1992. The second time in 2007, he was just below 6-1.
avi said on 9/Dec/13
Probably 6'1.5 now maybe under 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13
During his 1st term in office he looked 188-189cm. By the time Bush took over he looked 186cm tops.

Rob, is it possible that Clinton may have lost a bit during his presidency?
[Editor Rob: it shouldn't be ruled out. Sometimes stress and ill health can take more of a toll on your body.]

Jake, the only thing I think could explain it is that he did have a either a triple or quadruple bypass, and those surgeries are known to age a person quite a bit. He was definitely 6'2" at one time.

@Arch Stanton: do you think JFK Jr. may have been 186-187cm? I posted a picture of him on Paul Newman's page and he looks 10cm taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/13
@Arch Stanton: I actually posted a pic of John Kennedy Jr. and Paul Newman where he actually looks 186-187cm range. Clinton could very well have been a fraction over 6ft2
Arch Stanton said on 24/Sep/13
JFK jr looked 6'1" range to me, similar proportions to Pierce Brosnan, and Clinton looks a good inch taller Click Here I could believe he was 189 cm peak,
JAM said on 19/Aug/13
He is 6 feet now. Not sure if he lost an inch or not but that sounds right.
Mathew said on 3/Aug/13
He was at least 6'1.5" when he was the president. These days about 6'0".
MarkyMark said on 1/May/13
Why has he lost height in 2010 ?? I shook his hand in 2004 (very cool person) and he seemed to be around 6 ft 2 (188 cm) and at least 6ft1 (185cm).
ChUcKLeS said on 23/Apr/13
I have stood no more than 2 feet away from Bill Clinton. I am an honest 6'2. I felt that he was at least 3 inches shorter than me. He was wearing dress shoes that had a decent sized heel, as well.

Some say Obama wears lifts: Click Here
Trent said on 29/Jan/13
I wonder if that dodgy vegan diet he went on made him lose more height. He looked positively sickly. Went from maybe 15 lbs overweight to like 30 lbs underweight.
Peyman-6ft said on 18/Jan/13
Obama makes everybody shorter than what we usually expect them to be .
bill clinton : 6ft nowadays & 6ft 1.25in at peak
barrak obama : 6ft1in at lowest , no less than 187 out of bed . he even made piers morgan struggling with the 6 mark , I used to think morgan is 183-184 !!
Mike said on 10/Oct/12
If you look at him next to Obama at the latest convention in which Clinton appeared it's hard to believe he is 6"05 ft (184 cm).
Obama was at least 1.5 inches taller than him, at least!
If Obama is 6"1 (185-186 cm), y'all can make the calculation by yourselves.
p.s. not that it really matters, Clinton is a cool guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
Actually I agree with Danimal's estimate
"Peak height was 6 ft 2.25 in (189cm)"
I Met Him said on 21/Sep/12
I met him in Oxford in July 2012. I'm a 5'10" female and was wearing three inch heels. I definitely had an inch or two on him, so I'm placing him at 6' or 6'1".
Ali said on 16/Sep/12
Rob,Clinton was never 6'2. He was always clearly shorter
than 6'2 George Bush Senior.

Look at this picture and you can see that Bush is a bigger
man than Clinton:

Here another one:

George Bush senior is 6'2-6'2.5
Obama 6'1-6'1.5
Clinton 6'0-6'0.5
Silent d said on 14/Sep/12
He was maybe a cm shorter than 185cm obama. 184cm is about right.

If you haven't realized already (clearly you haven't) this is a height guessing site. Please read before commenting.

It amazes me how so many folks are obsessed with a persons height rather than the issues. We are talking 6ft vs 6-2 inch, come on folks!! Napolean did not conquer the Western World and go down in history as being tall. Being smart and confident is where it's at.
Brad said on 7/Sep/12
6'2" in prime. Down around 6'1" now. This is very noticable if you see him along side 6'2" Obama or 6" Arnold. To loose 1 inch at his age is not at all uncommon.

My Dad Met him 1993. He was a lieutenant with the Pittsburgh Police force and was part of his escort. My Dad who is 5'11 on the dot stood face to face with him and shook his hand and said he was not much taller than he was. He told me he looked like a solid 6 footer or less and said there was no way he was anywhere near 6'2.5.
