Pro to the question "Was Bill Clinton a Good President?"
"Bill [Clinton] is an extraordinary mixture of easygoing charm and ferocious intellectual capacity. Probably, in terms of political intuition and certainly in terms of turning such intuition into analysis, he is the most formidable politician I ever met. My theory is that, in a curious way, the blessing of his times is the disadvantage of his legacy. As with any period, the years 1993-2000 were full of events, many of them significant. But the world-changing events - 9/11 and the financial crisis - happened in the next presidency.
Bill was actually a brilliant president. He made it at times look easy. He ran a good economy; made big reforms; handled... Kosovo with real leadership."
