What a thrilling opening session when President Obama joined former President Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative! I’ve seen President Clinton speak many times, but this is the first time that I’d seen President Obama in person. I thought his words spoke to everyone reminding us of the beauty of service,” that anyone can do it and everyone should try.” In the 1,000 strong audience were more than 60 current and former heads of state, business leaders, civil society leaders, philanthropists, and celebrities included Matt Damon, Barbra Streisand, Ben Stiller and Goldie Hawn.
