President Clinton Calls for Bipartisan Work While Visiting KU

Former President Bill Clinton talked about the art of compromise when he spoke to a sold-out crowd at the University of Kansas Monday. He came to KU to accept a leadership prize from the Dole Institute of Politics.

The award recognizes Clinton's efforts to work on bipartisan solutions while he was in office. Clinton, a Democrat, said it’s important to consider rival viewpoints, and he repeatedly referred to his work with former Republican Kansas Senator Bob Dole.

Clinton said working with diverse groups creates the best solutions to problems. He lauded his former political rival, Bob Dole, as someone who was willing to consider other points of view. Clinton said that perspective may have come from Dole’s time recovering from injuries sustained during World War II.
That’s former President Bill Clinton, the recipient of the 2015 Dole Leadership Prize. The award comes with a $25,000 cash prize, which Clinton promptly donated back to the Dole Institute of Politics.
