Here are some highlights from the video clip:

'Bill Gates is somebody we're involved with, and he's got the deepest pockets of anyone. But his pockets aren't deep enough to fix this. This is a political problem. The good news is that if it's a political problem, it belongs to the people.'

'Oprah: How has this passion fueled your work on stage?
Bono: I was very humbled to find out that the less time I spent in the studio, the better the music seemed to get! The band is really supportive of my work. They just wish the people I was hanging out with weren't so un-hip!'

'The people who drove it home [in England], as much as the students and activists were a part of it, were mothers. That has been really powerful [the support from] mothers and women's groups. They're not scared of me, but when women start getting organized, they [politicians] get scared.'
