Bill Clinton at Harvard

This article is more than 13 years old.

Former President Bill Clinton was at Harvard University Wednesday. He was the featured speaker at the university's annual class day. Earlier in the day he was fundraising in Rhode Island for his wife's presidential campaign. But his Harvard speech veered away from politics. Instead, Clinton focused on what he called "our common humanity." Thursday, another Bill, Bill Gates takes the stage, and some 30 years after dropping out of Harvard to found Microsoft, he'll finally get a degree, albeit honorary, during Harvard's 356th commencement ceremonies.
