Former President Bill Clinton will attend the inaugural ceremony Monday at the Chicago Theatre, where Mayor Rahm Emanuel and 50 Chicago aldermen will be sworn in.

Emanuel and Clinton — whose wife, Hillary Clinton, is seeking the Democratic nomination for president — have a long history of working together. In 1982, Emanuel moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, to work for then-Gov. Clinton. Emanuel also served in several senior positions during the Clinton administration.

“I am energized by the both the opportunities and challenges that I face,” Emanuel said. “They’re daunting, yet they’re incredible.
