  Former President Bill Clinton spoke at the recent Philanthropy and Rural America conference in Little Rock, AR  “You have to create hope. People want to know that their tomorrows will be different than their yesterdays.”  — Bill Clinton,  July 14, 2009, Little Rock, AR Former President Bill Clinton presented a clear agenda for change for rural America during his talk at the Philanthropy and Rural America conference, held last week at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. I had never heard the former President speak, and was thrilled when I saw that Dee Davis from the Center for Rural Strategies had saved me a place at the front table.  Dee sat in front and videotaped the entire speech on his iPhone.
