On Monday I visited the Bill Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. It was an enjoyable and nostalgic experience. I was humbled to remember the Nineties. We were much more innocent then, not fully understanding the depth of hate the Islamic fundamentalist have for America. Thanks to the internet boom, we also had a growing economy that we thought would grow forever. Some sensible economic principles in our government and personal lives would have better prepared us for the last three years.
Despite his character flaws, it is still amazing that a son of a single Mom in Arkansas could educate himself, enter politics and become the president. To me, Bill Clinton is the quintessential Baby Boomer – so much talent, so many ideals and so many disappointing moments. I am glad to see his humanitarian efforts in these years after his presidency.
