Explain Bill Clinton's enduring popularity, assuming you accept the premise.
Moderate, pliable, always smiling, not dogmatic, good public speaker and comes off as human with human weaknesses.
Also, people love to take down a public figure. Well, he was taken "down." Pretty hard, I might add. Yet, he hung in there and bounced back after intense embarrassment. People probably admire that about him.
Also, the economy was good during the last years of his presidency and there was relative peace and prosperity... even though it may have had more to do with history than his policies.
He represents the pre-9/11 world when communism was no longer feared and Islamic extremism was not yet feared; the good old days, if you will; the apex of the pax Americana.
