Bill Clinton, on His Economic Legacy

Given the range of issues Peter Baker covers in his article about Bill Clinton for the coming New York Times Magazine, there was not room for anything close to Mr. Clinton’s entire comments on his economic record. And they’re fascinating (as is the article). So we’re going to post, below, the transcript of that portion of the discussion between Mr. Clinton and Mr. Baker.

Green Jobs: President Clinton and Spain’s Clean-Energy Bill

Wow, did former U.S. President Bill Clinton really acknowledge that Spain’s clean-energy push has cost the country a lot of jobs?
That’s what the conservative Spanish newspaper El Mundo reported over the weekend after Mr. Clinton spoke at the European University of Madrid, a report echoed with glee by critics of Spain’s green jobs policies (“What’s ‘ouch’ in Espanol?”).
Pity for them that the former president said exactly the opposite. From his speech transcript (ellipses in the original):

Facts point to Clinton's good work
Further, his charge that Clinton didn't run our intelligence operation as well as Bush/Cheney doesn't hold water, either. The Clinton administration captured, tried and convicted the perpetrators of the first WTC bombing. In 1995, they disrupted a plot to blow up planes from the Philippines to the West Coast. In 1996, the CIA had a section aimed solely at Osama bin Laden and after the embassy bombings in 1998, Clinton authorized missile strikes at the camp where bin Laden was supposed to be

Clinton joins Chirac's disease fight

Former US president Bill Clinton threw his support Wednesday behind a scheme to allow US air passengers to contribute voluntarily to a global scheme to buy cheap medicine for the developing world.
The retired US leader was in Paris, where his former French counterpart Jacques Chirac founded the UNITAID agency to oversee a one-euro-per-flight scheme to fund a massive drugs distribution effort.
Many countries, however, decided not to sign up to the compulsory tax, and French donors now pay much of the cost of a scheme that helps the United Nations to fund treatment for AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
