|Former president Bill Clinton, left, speaks alongside the Reverend Billy Graham|
Mr. Clinton greeted the 86-year-old preacher on stage Saturday in New York, telling Reverend Graham he is, in Mr. Clinton's words, "a man I love." The former president said the first Billy Graham crusade he attended was 46 years ago. He recalled being impressed as a young boy when Reverend Graham refused to preach to a segregated white-only crowd.
Reverend Graham, who is in failing health, joked with the former president that he should become an evangelist and let his wife run the country next.
The three-day evangelistic crusade ends with one final meeting Sunday.
