Clinton Named Haiti Envoy

Former President Bill Clinton isn’t content to stay in his wife’s shadow—he has just been named UN envoy to Haiti, which has suffered a year of debilitating natural disasters. Clinton will fundraise for the country’s rebuilding efforts through the United Nations, much like he and President George H. W. Bush did after the tsunami in 2004. The former President also plans to use his non-profit organization, the Clinton Global Initiative, to brainstorm for solutions to the country’s economic recovery, and visit the nation four times a year. The UN has yet to make the formal announcement, but Clinton jumped the gun and confirmed the appointment to The Miami Herald.
