-- Is former President Bill Clinton going to have a grandson?
During the interview – which covered a wide range of topics, including security at the White House in wake of a recent highly publicized breach – Stephanopoulos asked Clinton about “grandfather watch,” asking Clinton what he most wanted to teach his new grandchild.
Clinton replied: “I want my grandson..." and he paused, adding – “or granddaughter –,” and at that point Stephanopoulos interrupted, saying he thought the president may have revealed the news.
“No no no. I'm proud of my son-in-law and my daughter for not wanting to know,” Clinton said, referring to the baby’s gender.
And, speaking of the baby, he said: “I want them to get up every day and look at the world with wonder and reverence. I want them to respect everyone they meet, whatever their background … .”
He also said he wanted the child to “really love being alive … And when they grow up, I want them to believe they have certain obligations to people who don't have all the opportunities they'll have …,” he said.
The interview aired today on "Good Morning America."
For nearly a decade, the CGI has worked to affect the lives of more than 430 million people. Its annual meetings unite world leaders, CEOs and celebrities to take action on the world’s biggest challenges, including the environment and energy, education, global health, human rights and peace.
Through the work of more than 2,900 projects and programs in more than 180 countries, the initiative puts ideas into action, among them the “Billion Oyster Project” at the New York Harbor School, an effort to restore a billion live oysters to the harbor ecosystem with the help of school children.
Other CGI programs are designed to help inspire the next generation. 826 National helps students explore their creativity and improve their writing skills, all while helping those students pursue science-driven careers. Another program, Tech Girls Rock, helps girls discover their interest in technology, a field overwhelmingly populated by males.
The initiative also seeks to empower women through programs such as “Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corps,” which helps women veterans grow their small business.
Angela Cody-Rouget served in the U.S. Air Force for 18 years before resigning her commission to focus on being a mother.
“When I became a stay at home mom, I got to meet other civilian moms, and what I noticed when I would go to their home, is that their homes and their lives were a little chaotic, a little disorganized,” she said.
She founded Major Mom, a professional organization company. For many years, she struggled to make that company grow.
“Right when I was like, I don’t know how this is going to take … that is when Women Vet Entrepreneur came online …,” she said. “They believed in me and (that’s) what was missing from the recipe the whole time.”
Major Mom is on track to becoming a national brand.
“They were the wind beneath my wings,” Cody-Rouget said of CGI.
