Bill Clinton plays professor, blasts media in Georgetown speech

Washington (CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton's lecture on Wednesday had everything a Georgetown class usually has: A high profile professor, some carefully crafted slides and a handful of students dozing in their oversized sweatshirts.

Clinton, a Georgetown graduate, delivered an over 90-minute long lecture that addressed a topic with which he was intimately familiar – the eight years he was president. Clinton used his remarks to knock supply side economics, tout the economic growth that defined his presidency and, at one point, fault the media for their coverage of policy issues.

Bill Clinton: 'Wife might run for something'

(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton joked he's trying not to make too many waves because his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, "might run for something."

"One of the sad things is, of course, since you don't have any power, nobody cares what you say - except if your wife might run for something you've got to avoid messing up too bad," Bill Clinton said Saturday in Michigan.

Bill Clinton stumps for congressional candidate, family

Standing in a ballroom flanked by campaign signs in downtown Philadelphia, Clinton proudly endorsed would-be Rep. Marjorie Margolies for Congress, telling the audience that if the former congresswoman returned to Congress, she would "make you proud, she will vote right… she will do things that stand up she needs to stand up and she will cooperate when we need cooperation."

Inside Politics Speed Read: How Obama's legacy will stack up to LBJ's

Obama to honor LBJ’s civil rights legacy: President Barack Obama on Thursday will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. A lot of people have compared Obama with Lyndon B. Johnson recently. The LBJ people want to rescue his legacy from Vietnam. In a piece in the National Journal, George Condon argues Obama staffers don’t want their guy’s star put up next to the coarse-mouthed Texan. But you can’t argue that Johnson didn’t get a lot done in his first few years in office. Civil rights legislation, the Great Society programs and Medicare and Medicaid - these are legacy items with a more lasting imprint on American culture and society than most presidents can claim.

David Jackson puts it well in USA Today: “There was a time - a long time - when Democratic presidential candidates would not even utter the name Lyndon Baines Johnson. This week, the three Democrats elected president since Johnson traveled to Texas to honor the memory of LBJ - a president once reviled for the Vietnam War, now revered for a domestic record that includes landmark civil rights laws.”

Jackson’s piece points out that when Bill Clinton visited the LBJ library during a 1992 campaign stop, he didn’t once utter the late president’s name.
