Ehh, it's not horrible but not great. Not many job opportunity, but it's a good middle ground if you have people in the home who work in both Decatur and Bloomington.

Clinton is a nice, small town community. Clinton is a great place to give children a small-town upbringing with quality schools, while still allowing parents an easy commute to a larger city for work or entertainment.
I have greatly enjoyed living in this quiet, rural town and would very much like to see a Farm and Fleet or Rural King occupy the vacant building where Wal Mart used to be.
