Former President Bill Clinton has opened a conference of hundreds of business and government leaders to discuss ways to support the nation's economic recovery. The former president today urged those attending the two-day Clinton Global Initiative America event in Chicago to invest in projects that will create jobs. Among the goals, he said, were to share ideas in the areas of housing recovery, education, clean energy and helping returning war veterans find employment. The event has attracted high-profile participants like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, CNN host Fareed Zakaria, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Clinton's daughter, Chelsea Clinton. Other attendees include the CEOs of major corporations and charities and the mayors of Philadelphia and San Diego.
