Statement by President Bill Clinton on the Passing of Senator Robert C. Byrd

I am deeply saddened by the passing of my friend Senator Robert Byrd, whose record-breaking service greatly advanced America’s pursuit of a more perfect union. Senator Byrd was the most respected authority on the rules of Congress, the Constitution, and the history of the Senate. No American leader has shown more reverence for history, for learning its lessons, and for applying them in representative government. He set an incredible example of lifetime learning – earning his college degree in his thirties and getting his law degree while in Congress, at a time when he already knew more about the law than most lawyers in the country. He wasn’t afraid to learn from his mistakes or to change his mind on an issue when he felt he had been wrong. He was justly proud ......

Rep. Yvette D. Clarke Applauds Former President Clinton's Haitian Small Business Investment Fund

“I applaud former President Clinton for engaging Messrs. Slim and Guistra in this generous effort. As a Member of the House Small Business Committee and long time advocate for investments in indigenous Haitian businesses, I recognize the tremendous impact a loan fund such as this can have on Haiti’s economy,” said Rep. Clarke. H.R. 4961 would authorize create a Haitian American Enterprise Fund to invest in Haitian small businesses.

Bill Clinton "More than I can do alone"

When I made my first trip to sub-Saharan Africa in 1998, I saw the people of Uganda working to turn the tide of AIDS.

Bill Clinton: Another comeback for Comeback Kid

Democratic candidates up and down the ballot are requesting his help, seeking his backslapping politicking and high-dollar fundraising prowess. And there's little doubt that this political creature is basking in the attention, if not coveting the opportunity to campaign for Democrats where President Barack Obama may not be as welcome.

"He is very effective," said retiring Democratic Rep. Vic Snyder of Arkansas, who praised Clinton's understanding that the party should be a big tent. Still, Snyder added: "He recognizes he's not effective everywhere, and there are some places where he plays better than others."

Just like there are some places where Obama plays better than others.

Initiative Brief: Reducing Childhood Obesity Through a Focus on Schools as Part of a Multi-Sectoral Approach

Childhood obesity is one of our nation’s leading health threats. Today, nearly one in three children and youth is already overweight or obese. The obesity epidemic is clearly taking its toll, as more and more kids are developing conditions and diseases that we would normally associate with adults—like high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and type-2 diabetes. Some experts believe that if the childhood obesity trend continues, this current generation may become the first in American history to live shorter lives than their parents.
