Bono mentions ONE on Letterman

This week on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” Bono, U2 lead singer and ONE’s co-founder, praised President George W. Bush, ONE and Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle for their HIV/AIDS efforts in Africa. Watch Politico’s clip of the interview here:


Bono explained that an issue as critical as HIV/AIDS is something that unifies both the left and right. He lauded President Bush’s leadership and the work of ONE in an HIV/AIDS campaign that saved five million lives over the past eight years. And he described Africa as “the continent of the future,” citing that by 2050, Africa will be the largest and youngest continent on the planet.
