Clinton Global Initiative -- 2008 Annual Meeting

September 23, 2008

Cgiimage006_4The 63rd session of the UN General Assembly opened earlier today, and that means another annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) has rolled into town. (Actually, with two hundred heads of state and their security details packed into twenty square blocks of midtown, nothing much is moving, let alone rolling.)

I'll be live-blogging the event over the next couple of days. For those interested in checking out the sessions, kaisernetwork.org will provide live webcasts of most of them, along with archived video, transcripts, and podcasts.
