Former President Addresses Graduates

Former President Bill Clinton spoke today at Ohio State University, urging graduates to unite the world by focusing on what people have in common -- instead of dwelling on cultural and religious differences that divide it.

Clinton spoke to about 35-thousand people at Ohio Stadium,
including seven-thousand graduates.

He said even though research shows that all human beings share
99-point-nine percent of the same genetic makeup, some people focus
on the tiny percentage that is different.

Clinton has had a busy schedule this spring, giving several commencement addresses around the country and raising money for his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, who is a leading
Democratic contender for president.

But the former president avoided any mention of politics while
at Ohio State.
