I don't mean this to be snarky, but does it matter? It's so messy and atypical, it will always be questioned. Even if it is real, why add an exemplar like that to your collection?

BTW, if I had to guess, I'd say it's probably authentic.

You don't get to choose sometimes, esp. if you get it yourself. Not that I did, just saying. There's no way a TPA would bless this one that I picked up in person:

Adam,

I believe that Clinton you posted is authentic, just rushed. Not that atypical either as I've seen other similar examples.

I feel like most of the recent presidents have ugly sigs.

I got this Clinton pic signed a few weeks ago in person - the signature looks similar to the one posted above....

and i wouldn't call this an autograph myself, this a quick scribble to keep the masses happy.

No, that's incorrect.

American Heritage Dictionary: "A person's own signature or handwriting"
Merriam-Webster Dictionary: "a person's handwritten signature"
British English Dictionary: "a signature (= your name written by yourself) of a famous person"

Lewis stood in front of me and signed my card in his own hand = autograph. Sloppy doesn't come into the equation. If it did there would be practically no autographs of modern day baseball players!
