    I have never believed we had to choose between either a clean and safe environment or a growing economy. Protecting the health and safety of all Americans doesn't have to come at the expense of our economy's bottom line. And creating thriving companies and new jobs doesn't have to come at the expense of the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the natural landscape in which we live. We can, and indeed must, have both.
    — William J. Clinton

    — William J. Clinton
    In the emerging global economy, everything is mobile: capital, factories, even entire industries. The only resource that's really rooted in a nation-and the ultimate source of all its wealth-is its people.

    The only preparation for prospering in the global economy is investing in ourselves.
    — William J. Clinton
    I think the Democrats are going to have to be willing to give up, maybe, some short-term political gain by whipping up fears on some of these things - if it's a reasonable Social Security proposal, a reasonable Medicare proposal.

    — William J. Clinton
