“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.’
