Paul Greenberg (January 21, 1937 – April 6, 2021) was an American syndicated columnist and author. He served as the editorial page editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. His articles appeared in various newspapers through Tribune Content Agency's syndicate. He won the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing in recognition of his 1968 work for the Pine Bluff Commercial (Pine Bluff, Arkansas). Greenberg also was a Pulitzer finalist in 1978 and 1986, and served as a Pulitzer juror in 1984 and 1985.
On September 27, 1980, then-Governor Bill Clinton addressed the Arkansas Democratic Convention and cast himself as a standard-bearer of the postwar tradition of progressive governance in the state. In response, Greenberg dubbed Clinton "Slick Willie" and alleged he was a false reformer who abandoned the policies of such predecessors as Winthrop Rockefeller, Dale Bumpers and David Pryor. The moniker "Slick Willie" would go on to be frequently used by Clinton's opposition throughout his political career.
