Davos, Every Topic Is Fair Game for Bill Clinton (gets Standing Ovation!)

At Davos Forum, Every Topic Is Fair Game for Bill Clinton
Ex-president says why he likes Bush but not his policies, urges restraint in dealing with Iran and cautions against a hasty withdrawal from Iraq.


By Sebastian Rotella, Times Staff Writer

DAVOS, Switzerland Taking center stage at the World Economic Forum, former President Clinton delivered a virtuoso performance Thursday with a discussion of everything from Mideast crises to his past as president and future as a global activist.

Clinton was clearly in his element in the high-powered annual talkfest that is Davos. He won a standing ovation from a rapt audience of political, business and cultural leaders.

Clinton's focus during meetings here was on AIDS, poverty and Africa, issues on which he and his nonprofit foundation concentrate. But the evening conversation with talk show host Charlie Rose showcased Clinton's intellect, eloquence and occasional slipperiness on an array of issues. His long legs crossed at the ankles, he riffed like a jazz musician, sliding easily among topics and moods, alternately cerebral, wry and humorous.

Clinton gave opinions about President Bush, his political and personal antithesis in many ways.

lots more Bill here!:

10. Exactly, which is why I don't understand why Bill 'likes' him
... I mean, if I were Bill, I'd be as upfront as possible about what a lying psychopathic weenie little Georgie is.

Y'think he really does like him, on a personal level ?

If so, :puke: IMO.

12. Only he likes him for the fact he makes the big dog
look so good. On a personal level B.C. sees him for what he is.

15. I saw some of that on csan
It made me feel kind of sad - I miss having an intelligent president, plus, he's aged since his surgery. But boy - what a smart guy.
