Bush and Clinton will appear for the hour-long keynote discussion on February 4, moderated by TD Ameritrade Institutional President Tom Bradley. Bradley said of the appearance: "We are thrilled to be able to bring such distinguished leaders to our national conference and offer advisers a balanced discussion on global issues impacting their business and their clients." This year is expected to attract the largest-ever crowd to the 14-year old conference, which drew more than 1,000 investment advisers last year.
The conference will mark the second time former Presidents Clinton and Bush will appear together at an event, the first being a Toronto forum back in May. That event, which drew 6,000 attendees, was surprisingly amiable, with President Bush even referring to Clinton as his "brother." Bush also joked about ticket prices for the event, which ranged from $200-$2,500, saying "President Clinton and I used to believe in free speech, so thanks very much for coming."
I always think joint appearances by former Presidents is interesting, for whatever reason.
