Ellen: How To Take President Bill Clinton’s Global Challenge


Ellen: President Clinton Global Challenge

A lot of people talk about wanting to make a difference in the world. There are so many different ways to get involved and worthy causes or organizations out there that it can be hard to know where to start. This could be a reason that people don’t always pursue their altruistic goals.

But today, Ellen DeGeneres and former President Bill Clinton spoke about the Global Challenge, which is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and make a difference.


Ellen and President Clinton also discussed Hillary Clinton’s Legacy and the Death of Osama Bin Laden.

He said you can visit his Clinton Foundation website to select a topic or cause you are interested in. That will lead you to information and resources that can help you get involved in a local charity, cause, or program that could use your help and support.


“My whole theory about this is there’s something everybody can do, no matter how much time they have or don’t have, money they have or don’t have, what they know in some specific area,” he said. “And this will help you pick something that you’ll find personally fulfilling.”

“I don’t deserve any credit,” he said. “I feel like I should be paying every day to do this. I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in my life.”

Ellen said she has always admired President Clinton for his intelligence and positive attitude.

Ellen’s Portrait for President Clinton

Through the years, it’s become customary for presidents to have oil portraits done of themselves in the Oval Office at the White House. These iconic images have become a part of our culture, and Ellen even claims to have a reproduction of Clinton’s portrait on display in her home.

She said President Clinton must feel the same way about her, and that’s what inspired her gift to him. Ellen had a black and white portrait of herself commissioned, and she appeared to be depicted in 19th century American garb.

“Thank you. I accept,” President Clinton said. “And I’d vote for this character for anything.”

I doubt this will make it to the Clinton estate, but at least he’s a good sport. If nothing else, Ellen will always get to have the picture she took posing with President Clinton and her silly portrait.
