CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked former President Bill Clinton about Obama's style and the President's perceived lack of empathy at the CNN/Fortune/Time Global Forum held earlier this week in Cape Town, South Africa. Clinton notes that each President has to be allowed to have their own style and what works for one may not work for another. Clinton also believes that Obama isn't being given enough credit he is doing as President.
As per the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Clinton noted the most important issues are, in order:
1. Fix the leak
2. Keep the oil away from the shore
3. Minimize the damage from the oil
4. Determine who is at fault whether that be BP or government regulators and hold them accountable.
The former President also discusses the possibility of having the US Navy seal the leak by bombing it.
