Regardless of what you think of his politics, Bill Clinton is one the most famous icons world wide! Consider that last statement for a moment…This man was once the leader of the most powerful country on the planet. He has hosted world leaders and traveled the world.

Last night he was hosted by a little city in southern Ontario called Windsor. My hometown. The thought is absolutely mind blowing. If you would have told me a few years ago that a US president would be delivering the keynote address of an environment expo in Windsor in April of 2010 I would have laughed.

Not because I don’t think Windsor’s worthy of such a speaker but surely Bill had something better to do than spend time with the hardest hit economic region in the country of Canada.

Wow, all I kept thinking was wow….Slick Willy was talking in Windsor ON and I was there to witness it. I thought of a quote that I once heard…
-Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.

Windsor’s future looks a little bit brighter when it considers Bill Clinton a friend. Please understand this post clearly. I am not advocating or glorifying Clinton for what he may or may not have done and am not debating whether you support him or not.

What I propose is that the organizers of last night’s event had the vision to see Windsor as being GOOD enough to host one of the most well known men on the planet. If Windsor is good enough for Billy boy…who’s next?

Congratulations to the organizers for a job well done!
