Clinton, just another American

John Vinocur writes in the International Herald Tribune that the European elite press and intelligentsia are pushing Bill Clinton to sound like Michael Moore on Iraq, which he refuses to do. That Clinton may have made American hyperpower "likable and seductive" to Europeans is to be noted, yet in the end the Europeans are discovering that he was just another American politicians who was willing to pursue America’s view of justice and its own interests in the world. They take it all out on Bush, but its how America sees itself and moves through the world that they don’t like.

A tepid endorsement of Bill Clinton?

Why not? Clinton was probably the best Democratic president we’ve had since Truman.
