LITTLE ROCK - (KTHV) - Former President Bill Clinton honors 3 marines Monday evening at the Clinton Presidential Library.

It was a quiet and somber dedication to two marines killed in combat and a third who survived wounds he suffered during Operation Enduring Freedom.

It was a fairly private ceremony with mostly family in attendance which made it all the more personal.

"All we can do is give you our gratitude," said Former President Bill Clinton.

Best year: The Clintons

It isn't just the secretary of state who can count 2011 as a very good year. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, appears fully rehabilitated from the image hit he took during the 2008 campaign and has reclaimed his title as the smartest strategist in the Democratic Party. The Obama White House even appears to be taking a page from the 1996 Clinton reelection strategy, making a series of small-bore moves on the economy to show progress. (If you want more on how to fix the economy, just check out Bill's book "Back to Work," released last month and ensconced on the bestseller lists.)

President Bill Clinton opens GEMS American Academy-Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI – Former US president Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, on Tuesday opened GEMS American Academy - Abu Dhabi, in presence of Shaikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research and Humaid Mohammed Al Khathami, UAE Minister of Education.

On this occasion, Clinton said, “I often think that the education of even one child who otherwise would not have the opportunity to get a world class education, may be worth to the future of the world, more than all the endeavours that I have engaged in my life. I very much appreciate the commitment GEMS has, to try to provide that opportunity for ever larger numbers of children, here, and other places across the world.”

If you want Hillary to run in 2012, tell her why

Here is a short conversation between my friend Rumana and President Clinton Dec 9 at a book signing in Chappaqua. Here is Rumana’s synopsis:

I said to him hello Mr. President me and my friends want to know if Hillary will run, and I mean in 2012 and not 2016. He paused for a sec. And said she keeps saying no but if she gets enough encouragement maybe she will change her mind.
I said you should go to S4h FB page and see we are encouraging her. He put his hand on my shoulder and said if lot more people encourage her maybe she will run. I said Mr. President we are talking about 2012 please do something. He said she needs to know you are there for her and I said please tell her.

The Rumors About Bill Clinton Are True

Former President Bill Clinton has a new book out, Back to Work. Its subtitle is: Why We Need Smart Government For A Strong Economy.

He knows a thing or two about divided government, battling Congress and repairing economies and squaring budgets in the process. So, when the opportunity to meet him at a book signing arose, I grabbed it.
