Bill Clinton defends Obama’s foreign policy

September 25, 2012

ON MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday, former president Bill Clinton argued that President Obama has invested plenty of time in working with world leaders, even though he's not holding any bilateral meetings when he addresses the UN General Assembly today. 

"I have not talked to Hillary about this because I never want to know anything that i shouldn't be talking about on television," Clinton said. But he said his understanding was that "they've been up to their ears in conversations" with leaders in the Middle East. 

 Clinton also predicted less gridlock in Washington should Obama win reelection. 

Democrats and Republicans "will have a dramatically greater incentive to get stuff done," Clinton argued, with a president who is not running for reelection. "I think you will have an operating majority to do something."
