(Bill) Clinton To Sit On National Board To Promote OKC National Memorial Mission

Oklahoma City - Former President Bill Clinton said today he's joining a new board to promote the mission of the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

Clinton spoke to about 200 museum supporters, bombing survivors and rescue workers at the memorial and museum during day long visit. He later traveled to Tulsa, where he and former President George H.W. Bush spoke at a dinner for the Salvation Army.

Clinton was president when a truck bomb tore through the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19th, 1995, killing 168 and injuring more than 500. He says the stories from survivors and rescue workers had a profound and lasting effect on him and the nation.

The visit was the fifth since the bombing for Clinton. This time, he took a private tour of the memorial and museum and was honored with a Beacon of Hope Award for his support.

Clinton then headed to the Tulsa event, which drew nearly 1,000 people.

Bush says people call him and Clinton the odd couple because they ran against each other in 1992, but he says that doesn't mean they can't work together on important issues.

No harm. I really can’t say I trust anything Bill Clinton is involved in.
