Bill Clinton kicks off 'Stronger Together' bus tour in Orlando

- Former President Bill Clinton was in Orlando on Friday, using the stage at the Rosen Center to launch his "Stronger Together" campaign bus tour across Florida for wife Hillary.

"People think it's a traveling Smithsonian museum," he quipped about the bus, ahead of his planned travels from Orlando to Pensacola.

The 42nd president of the United States addressed the invitation-only crowd of about a thousand from the Florida Education Association.   He talked about his wife's economic plan and encouraged people to get out and vote.

"The price you pay for living is that, sometimes things that happen are unfair and unjust.  The only question you can answer every day is: what are you going to do about it and how are you going to feel about it?" Clinton told the crowd. 

He played to the audience, telling the teachers to take a close look at the policies put forth by his wife and those of her opponent and analyze them carefully, as if preparing a lesson plan. 

After speaking for about 45 minutes, Clinton closed saying, "We just gotta be a 'tomorrow country' again; can't do it without a mind well-educated and a heart well-turned."

He then left the stage to meet and greet the crowd.
