Clinton and Bush in Chicago for Private Conference

Two of the most prominent men in America are in Chicago today giving speeches on the importance of biotechnology.
But good luck finding out what Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have to say during dual keynote speech at the Biotechnology Industry Organization’s annual meeting at the McCormick center. The entire meeting is closed to the public and media. Source:

“Biotech can play a big role in how we produce and consume energy,” said President Clinton. He also stated that ‘there is no more urgent task’ than addressing climate change.

President Bush emphasized that we must have a vibrant economy to support biotech innovation. “We need to incent research and aggressively encourage investment [in biotech],” said President Bush.

Both Presidents Clinton and Bush acknowledged each others’ accomplishments while in office and kept a consistently collegial tone throughout the moderated discussion.

When President Clinton was asked what he missed most about being Commander-in-Chief he said that he loved ‘representing America around the world,’ and added that it’s the only job he’ll ever have in which they ‘play a song every time I walk into a room.’
