It's kind of like having Captain Queeq of the U.S.S. Caine assure you he's fine and has everything under control. Woops - he's insane and will destroy the ship, but shut up and sit down, he's your commanding officer. (Caine Mutiny)
Meanwhile, President Clinton still leads forward thinking and into the future:
"NEW YORK - Former President Bill Clinton convinced world and business leaders to commit more than $1.25 billion to address major global problems, ranging from poverty to clean energy.
In his closing remarks Saturday the first annual Clinton Global Initiative, the former president promised progress reports on the more than 190 initiatives.
Clinton told participants - including heads of state and business leaders - to remember the impact their work can have on future generations, saying "we are so arrogant because we are obsessed with the present."
