Summary

THE OVAL OFFICE-- President Bill Clinton met with Science magazine on 6 December for a broad-ranging interview that looked at how science and technology are likely to change our world, and how he might continue to interact with the scientific community after he leaves office in January. What emerged confirms a portrait many people have painted of Clinton: a polymath who rarely resorts to the platitudes we have come to expect from politicians--especially on the topic of science. This online transcript of the conversation between Clinton and Science Editor Ellis Rubinstein contains material which could not be included in print for space reasons.
