Bill Clinton to White House for ‘Private’ Meeting

Former President Bill Clinton will visit one-on-one with President Obama this afternoon in a meeting White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says he wants to keep “appropriately private.”

Gibbs says the two POTUSes will discuss a number of foreign and domestic policy issues, but would not elaborate further.
