Clinton Touches on Politics, Library, Public Health in Chamber Speech

NOVEMBER 16, 2004 - Posted at 5:06 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Bill Clinton told an audience in Little Rock today that energy will be a key issue in the next presidential race.

Clinton says a big part of the debate will be on how the U.S. can reduce its use of foreign oil while still growing the economy.  The former president is in Little Rock in advance of the Thursday opening of his presidential library.

He addressed a meeting of the Little Rock chamber of commerce today.  He said he wants visitors to his library to learn about public service and to be able to enjoy a broad range of exhibits in a pleasant environment.

Clinton also talked about his mission to combat the worldwide scourge of AIDS, one of his post-presidency priorities.
