    Clinton Cuts a Deal for Kids With AIDS
    By NIRMALA GEORGE
    AP
    NEW DELHI (Nov. 30) - Former President Clinton announced Thursday that two Indian pharmaceutical companies had agreed to cut the prices of HIV and AIDS treatment for children, making the lifesaving drugs far more accessible worldwide.

    The companies will supply drugs for HIV-positive children at prices as low as 16 cents a day, or less than $60 a year, alllowing an additional 100,000 HIV-positive children in 62 countries to receive treatment in 2007, the foundation said.

    "This is a great day, but we have a long way to go. We have to make a new commitment that every child and adult would needs treatment should have access" to the drugs, Clinton said. "Though the world has made progress in expanding HIV/AIDS treatment to adults, children have been left behind. Only one in 10 children who needs treatment is getting it."

    Clinton announced the deal in a speech at a New Delhi children's hospital at the launch of a new Indian government program to treat HIV-positive children. World AIDS Day is Friday.

    Do you think Bush will even leave this country after January 2009?

    Jenna and Barb were in Paraguay house-hunting, so I bet W moves to a country without an extradition treaty.

    "Writer Paul Schnelzer reports that the US and Paraguay have an extradition treaty with one (big) exception: "political offenses." Paraguay has been a popular hideout for Nazi's and other war criminals and has had relations with the Bush family dating back to the president's grandfather Prescott Bush. "Poppy" Bush, the president's father, was CIA chief in 1976 during Operation Condor, a covert intelligence plan to eliminate left-wing opposition groups in South American countries, including Paraguay."

    A big moment today.

    You can skip over it.

    What a nitwit rejoinder.

    By someone who usually displays much more than gray guac between the cochleas.

    clinton is doing great things. his charitable giving programs are bringing in billions of dollars. it looks like he doesn't even want credit for this stuff, or at least even if he does want the publicity, he's doing things for the right reasons. i mean what else does this guy have left to accomplish? he's already been leader of the free world and he's now filthy rich.

    Yeah, Clinton has never done anything for publicity...

    Don't get me wrong, his charities are doing great, but he wants Hillary to win the presidency more than anything so he can get back in the public eye...

    Nothing wrong with that, but to suggest he doesn't want publicity is fucking absurd...

    I like Clinton a lot more now than I did when he was president. Clinton has a long way to go to match what Jimmy Carter has done as an ex-president, but he's well on his way.

    And Bush might head down to Cancun for spring break.
