Description
President Bill Clinton and U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Republican and ardent Clinton adversary, share a stage at a town hall in Claremont. Each makes a brief opening statement (Gingrich talks over some heckling) before answering audience questions on lobbying reform, medicare reform, ending partisan sniping in Washington, U.N. peacekeeping, the minimum wage, and balancing the budget/lowering the deficit while also preserving federal public service programs such as AmeriCorps. Clinton and Gingrich reveal areas of common ground on lobbying reform and Medicare reform and disagree respectfully on other issues. Attendees express hope in post-event reaction interviews that the town hall will herald more bipartisan cooperation in Washington and Gingrich says he'd be open to holding more joint town halls. He also states that he is not inclined to seek the presidency because he enjoys the speakership.
