Pol Light Moment #86 is when Bill Clinton brought the rock music band known as Fleetwood Mac together for his Inaugural Ball on January 19, 1993. Bill Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States and served from 1993-2001. He also served as the Governor of Arkansas from 1983-1992. The Fleetwood Mac song "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" had become the unofficial campaign song for Bill Clinton in his 1992 Presidential Campaign.

Because of some conflicts in the group, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Steve Nicks of Fleetwood Mac had not been on the same stage performing since 1982 (Ultimate Classic Rock, 20 Years Ago: Fleetwood Mac Performs at President-Elect Clinton's Inauguration). Bill Clinton was able to convince the group to put aside their differences and reunite to do a live performance together of their song Don't Stop for his Inaugural Ball  on January 19, 1993, the evening before he was sworn in as President (, This Day in History).

Here is a video of Fleetwood Mac performing at Bill Clinton's Inaugural Ball.
