CNN: Blitzer interviews Bill Clinton in South Africa

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed former president Bill Clinton at Fortune Time CNN Global Forum in South Africa Saturday. Apparently Clinton was paid for the interview, an unusual practice in television journalism. Clinton also said that Obama gets a “bum rap” on the oil spill issue, and thought that the current president showed enough emotion and empathy.

He also discussed the Palestinian and West Bank situation, and suggested that historically at one time it had been possible for Israel to settle some West Bank lands without expropriation from individual Palestinian property owners, but the mathematics of that matter had quickly changed by the 1970s.
