Clinton's boyhood home designated as national historic site

Clinton spoke Saturday at the dedication of his former home in Hope that's been renovated and designated as a national historic site.

The former president and governor of Arkansas told a crowd of about 400 that America is having tough times because the country has moved from being a people-centered society to a money-centered society.

Clinton also greeted many old friends who gathered on a sunny and windy afternoon.

Clinton said lessons from his mother and her parents -- with whom he lived at the two-story home -- taught him that every person deserves dignity and should be able to pursue their aspirations.
