Former President Bill Clinton joins 'Fresh Start' tour to encourage voting for change
(UrbanMediaToday) - Noting
his new status as a grandfather has made former President Bill Clinton reflect
on things a bit more.
“The sun comes up in the morning,
and I’m just happy I’m still here. You become more concerned about tomorrow,”
Clinton says. “You care more about your children, more about your
grandchildren, and more about what the future holds. And, if you have lived the
life I have, you want every kid to have the same chances, without regard to
their race, their income, their zip code…”
Clinton addressed a packed house at
a rally held Monday at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers’
Circuit Center Ballroom on Pittsburgh’s South Side as part of a “get out the vote
effort” in conjunction with Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Wolf’s
“Fresh Start” bus tour.
