Wolf Blitzer to interview Bill Clinton

On Thursday, CNN's Wolf Blitzer will sit down with former President Bill Clinton for an extensive interview from the Clinton Global Initiative in Chicago.

Clinton raised eyebrows recently when he told CNN that Mitt Romney had a "sterling" business record. But he changed his tune Monday, saying a Romney presidency would be "calamitous" for the country and the world.

Blitzer will ask Clinton about these comments and more in the interview airing at 4pm ET Thursday during "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" on CNN.

    Wow...I didn't think that Clinton would allow obama's people to tell him what to say and what not to say. He looks like a fool now...how could he have allowed that lousy obama to do this to him...I've lost all respect for him!

    I always respect the Clinton's and I just wished that Americans voted for Hillary 4 years ago probably we have a better economy , Im not so fond of a president that did nothing for several years but campaigning and raising more money for himself .

    Ask the former President how he felt when he first became president and learned that there are aliens living in area 51, and that he reports to them.

    I can't believe Clinton would stoop so low that he lets Obama and his handlers define him as a dottering old Fool.
    American Democrats wish Clinton would run against Obama in the upcoming DNC primary. Clinton would crush Obama.

    I can not believe how you treated the former Pres. He should not have to apologize for what he said BC I feel he believes what he said about taxes n Romney.I think if he is treated this way any more people are going to be upset I know I am. I really think he should not campaign for Mr Obama BC of how he is being treated.

    same thing happen in mexican politics where former president Vicente Fox (PAN) praised the current presidential candidate, Peña Nieto (PRI) calling for people to join ranks with him. I wonder if it has any thing to do with age. Or what than?

    President Clinton, why did you help repeal Glass-Stegall and what do you think about Romney grading the President's foreign policy with an F?

    I would like former President Clinton's opinion on the proposed diminishment of so-called "entitlements" to seniors and those approaching or in retirment. Contributions to Social Security and Medicare, mandated by the government, have been paid from every paycheck they have earned throughout their working lives with the expectation that both would be there when they retire. Entitlement is not a dirty word. They paid it forward and are now "entitled" to repayment.

    Well Doug Ericson, President Clinton didn't have any role in the establishment or practice of trading pooled mortgage securities and if you'll go research the congressional votes on the matter, you'll find that republicans were the mastermind behind the deregulation of oversight which would prevent subsequent occurrences such as the derivatives packaging scandal. The President, his administration and the democrats sought regulation which was repeatedly defeated by Congress during his terms in office and did not play a role in the matter during the Bush administration as well. If you're looking for the smoking gun, you need to turn to the right and ask that question.

    He doesn't think it's a good idea now or then and for the very reasons which became glaringly evident during the H.W. Bush administration.

      Thank you for your reply. I'm curious, did President Clinton veto any of the Republican backed legislation, passed under his watch, which led to the Wall Street practice of selling pooled Mortgage Securities? Doug.

    It's really too bad the Democratic Congress shot themselves in the foot and made Presidents terms only two or Mr. Clinton would still be in the White House instead of this doofus we got there now.

    I would like to ask former President Bill Clinton, about the part he thinks he played in allowing Wall Street to sell Pooled Mortgage Securities. I would also like to ask him if he still thinks its a good practice and what he thinks should be done about it now.
