Just listen: Bill Clinton on Helmut Kohl

David Frum wrote today: “To cheer us all up, here’s the elegant & generous eulogy of Helmut Kohl delivered by former President Clinton.” He’s right about the elegance and generosity of the eulogy. The contrast, however, with current circumstances is so dire that cheer is not what springs to mind.

Clinton said of Kohl, “He wanted to create a world in which no one dominated.” Just listen.
