Former President Clinton Gives Speech At Raleigh Convention

Posted December 8, 2002

— A spirited and very candid former President was in the Triangle Friday night, speaking to a huge religious organization.

Bill Clinton was in Raleigh at the invitation of the General Baptist Convention. He spoke about current events, National and International.

Among other things, Clinton said the U.S. shouldn't go it alone in a war with Iraq.

"In the end, you can't kill all your enemies," he said. "You have to be both strong and still have the mind and heart to try and reconcile your differences and reach across the divide."

Mr. Clinton later praised the Convention for all the support it gave to Princeville after Hurricane Floyd devastated that area in 1999.
