Bill Clinton Bringing CGI U Third Annual Meeting to University of Miami

Bill Clinton sitting down for a one-on-one with Jon Stewart should be enough reason to watch The Daily Show tonight, but the University of Miami's official Facebook page promises the ex-prez will make an announcement concerning the school.

"After tonight's football game, watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central for an announcement about UM by President Bill Clinton," is all the status update says.

Anyone care to hazard a guess?

University of Miami's president, Donna Shalala, served as Clinton's secretary of health and human services for both of his terms and was a personal friend of the Clintons' for years before that. She already persuaded him to speak at the school once. Has she pulled another major Clinton coup?

Or it might be something painfully minor and general. Who knows? But we can't find any other information about what he plans to talk about tonight besides his Clinton Global Initiative.

Update: Our recommendation that you check out tonight's Daily Show still stands, but the Miami Hurricane got the scoop on Jon Stewart: University of Miami will host the third annual Clinton Global Initiave University Meeting, next April 16 through 18. Donna Shalala says she personally asked Clinton to host the event on her campus. CGI U brings young people together to focus on education, energy and climate change, global health, peace and human rights, and poverty alleviation. Previous meetings have included visits from Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and other notables.
