Bill Clinton compares Wall Street protests to the Arab spring

| No Comments

Former President Bill Clinton compared the Wall Street protests to the Arab spring during a Tuesday discussion at the Chicago Ideas Week conference. Chicago Sun-Times political writer Abdon M. Pallasch has the story HERE.

From Pallasch: Clinton also weighed in on the protests on Wall Street, Chicago's LaSalle Street and other places: "It's kind of like the Arab Spring, which was profoundly moving to me: they knew what they were against but they weren't sure exactly what they were for."
