Former President Bill Clinton once again proved his longevity in politics in his prime time speech at the Democratic National Convention last week. Even though he delivered highly-critical remarks regarding Mitt Romney, he still managed to recruit Romney to participate in an event later this month for the Clinton Global Initiative.
And President Obama will be there, too.
“I’m grateful that President Obama and Governor Romney are taking time to join leaders from all parts of society who choose to address our greatest global challenges through the Clinton Global Initiative,” Clinton said in a press release. “CGI is built on the spirit of non-partisan, cross-sector collaborations that drive action and I’m proud that, since we began in 2005, CGI members have made more than 2,100 commitments that are already improving the lives of 400 million people all over the world.”
Romney and Obama are scheduled to address separate sessions on the last day of the meeting which runs Sept. 23-25 in New York City.
