The Big Picture


Collaboration among the nation's political leaders and support for the economic stimulus were among the topics former President William Jefferson Clinton fielded in a March 2 talk at the University at Albany. Speaking before an audience of 4,500 at SEFCU Arena, Clinton also noted that poverty affects much of the world's population, triggering inequities in access to such basic necessities as food, clean water and health care, and fueling political instability. In addition, the two-term chief executive offered students some advice: to maximize the opportunities available to them at UAlbany and to "make the future you want."
