In a well received speech on foreign aid at the Clinton Global Initiative Tuesday, Mitt Romney was effusive in his praise of Bill Clinton. There could be several reasons for that.
Speaking before the Clinton Global Initiative, Mr. Romney made a rueful reference to that address, saying, “If there’s one thing we’ve learned this election season, it’s that a few words from Bill Clinton can do any man a lot of good.”
Then he went on to praise Mr. Clinton’s post-White House career. “President Clinton has devoted himself to lifting the downtrodden around the world,” said Romney. “One of the best things that can happen to any cause, to any people, is to have Bill Clinton as its advocate. That is how needy and neglected causes have become global initiatives.”
Wow. Why the amity, considering recent political history?
