“Proud, grateful, wistful.”
That’s how former President Bill Clinton summed up his feelings about daughter Chelsea‘s upcoming summer nuptials to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in an interview with another former first daughter, TODAY show contributor Jenna Bush Hager. “I just hope I can keep it together when I walk her down the aisle.”
Hager sat down with Clinton in Miami, Florida at the third annual Clinton Global Initiative University, where over 1,300 students met with university officials and leaders from nonprofits to talk about creative solutions to today’s global issues. Included among the students were six from Haiti. President Barack Obama called upon Clinton and Hager’s father, former President George W. Bush, to help in relief and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake earlier this year.
One particular area of interest to both Clinton and Hager, a teacher and author when she’s not on NBC: education. Clinton says the issue is vitally important:
“The country needs to start educating its people, so what we’re trying to do now is use this as the beginning to total universal enrollment.”
