Vice President of the United States under President Jimmy Carter
Pro to the question "Was Bill Clinton a Good President?"
"I'm sorry about the one mistake, everybody knows about it, no point in discussing it, but I think [Bill Clinton's] a very good person who tried very hard to help produce an America that is sensitive, that is fair, that tries to create hope instead of this bitterness. He tried to do the same thing internationally. I think he's got to go down as a very successful president."
