A Conversation with President Clinton

Clinton Global Initiative Meeting on Boosting U.S. Economy

By Trish Regan

I was in Chicago for the third annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting where the focus was on restoring growth to our economy. Bloomberg TV was the exclusive broadcaster from the event and, while there, I had the opportunity to speak with the creator of the event himself, Former President of the United States Bill Clinton.  Bloomberg viewers heard his views on everything from repatriating offshore profits (he’d like to bring money back for use in an infrastructure bank) to the NSA, to Syria and energy independence in the US.  When I asked him if we’d see a Clinton in the White House in 2016, he delivered a line that drew both laughter and applause from the audience. “Chelsea’s still too young,” he joked.  He then went on to stress the importance of looking beyond politics and beyond elections.
