Clinton Speaks At Packed Assembly Hall

Last updated on Thursday, April 3, 2008

(UNDATED) - Former President Bill Clinton addressed a packed house at Assembly Hall Wednesday afternoon.

Bloomington was the last stop of Clinton's most recent Indiana tour to campaign for his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. The theme of the speech was the "Future of America."

The former president touted his wife's energy plan and how she plans to repeal tax cuts for nuclear energy and big oil were major themes. Former President Clinton also talked about the need to continue using coal as an energy resource.

Clinton also spoke about how much of the U.S. is "already in a recession" because the middle-class is seeing flat incomes, but exploding living costs. Clinton said fundamental research is "fundamental" to today's youth living to be 100.

The former president also made stops Wednesday in Columbus, Bedford, and Seymour. Senator Clinton's rival, Barack Obama, will make a stop in Muncie Friday.
