Bill Clinton to LatAm bankers: engage the left
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton urged the people who run Latin America's biggest development bank on Saturday not to turn their backs on the leftists in the region who parlayed the poor's discontent into electoral victories.
Clinton didn't name Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia, whose presidents have all demonized Washington and expelled U.S. diplomats in recent months, referring to them rather as "Colombia's neighbors."
He said he doesn't agree with their politics but "I do understand why poor people who feel powerless turn away from the messy world of democracy."
