Even former presidents still have items waiting to be checked off their bucket lists apparently.
On Saturday, former President Bill Clinton sat down for an interview with Politico’s Chief White House Correspondent Mike Allen at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas and gave a rundown of his bucket list…and no, being First Man was not among the items he chose to disclose.
“I would like to ride a horse across the Gobi Desert to the place where people think Genghis Khan is buried in Mongolia. I would like to do that. I would like to climb Kilimanjaro before it has no snow because of climate change. That’s something I’d really like to do. I would like to go to Namibia where my daughter and son-in-law went on their honeymoon and see the oldest desert on Earth,” Clinton said.
“The President of Namibia called me once and he said, “I came and met with you early in your term and you’ve never been here. You came to Africa, you went all over the country. Why don’t you come here?” I said, “Because you don’t have enough problems. You’re too well-governed.” And I said, “You know, as the American President, you’ve got to go someplace where there’s something you can do, and you don’t need us.” So I’d like to go there and see that desert. Those are some of the things that are on my bucket list.”
