President Bill Clinton’s Lecture @ Georgetown University, Washington DC–Purpose
Earlier today I posted this April 21, 2015 Lecture
by the 42nd President of the United States, President William Jefferson Clinton, to guests, faculty and students at Georgetown University, Washington DC–where he attended the Walsh School of Foreign Service in 1968 before going to Oxford and Yale– on Facebook of The Techo Sen School of Government and International Relations, The University of Cambodia, Phnom Penh for the benefit of my colleagues and Masters and Doctoral students.
In his Lecture, President Bill Clinton spoke about inclusive politics and inclusive economics and the purpose of public service, citing many examples of leaders in politics, business and civil society when he was in the White House. I hope my fellow Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur and other parts of our country, my associates and friends and readers who support my blog can get the drift of Bill Clinton’s message and reflect on his thoughts about the true purpose of public service.
I am sure our Prime Minister has own purpose to be in public service. But you can bet that Najib’s purpose is not something the 42nd President of the United States has in mind.–Din Merican
