Bill Clinton outlines 100-day agenda for the, er, next president

“Let’s assume you are advising a presidential candidate,” Rose said, to laughter.

“That’s a heavy assumption,” Clinton quipped back. “My advice has sometimes been welcome, sometimes not. Sometimes right and sometimes not.”

Regarding the next president’s first hundred days, Clinton said they should focus on helping people climb out of poverty into the middle class. He said he would favor a revived effort in building energy infrastructure and directing investments toward programs to create jobs that would also simultaneously change the job mix to create higher-paying positions. He also called for altering student loan programs to help students with debt, working on initiatives to make higher education more affordable and reforming the U.S. corporate tax system.
