Bill Clinton Impressed by Michele Bachmann

Thursday, 30 Jun 2011 11:19 AM

By Caroline Rawls

Former President Bill Clinton was on "Good Morning America" Thursday and asked what he thought of the Republican field. Interestingly, he said he liked the more "moderate" candidates, and without naming all names ("if I say anything nice about them, they'll lose for sure"), he sized up a few of the top contenders, including Michele Bachmann:

On Bachmann:
“I’m not surprised by how well Michele Bachmann has done. I’ve been watching her speak. She comes across as a real person. All those foster children she’s taken in and children she’s raised.”

On Huntsman:

“I think he’s quite an impressive man. He’s refreshingly kind of unhide bound, and comes across as non-ideological. Conservative, but non-ideological and practical.”

On Romney:

“Governor Romney is doing a better job as a candidate this time than he did four years ago. He comes across as more relaxed and more convicted about what he did do. Less willing to just be forced into apologizing for it.”

On the whole GOP field:

“I don’t think I’m well-informed enough to make a judgement about that. The ones I like are the ones you think are more moderate. Because I think they’re a little more connected to the real world; I think they’d be formidable. But I’m afraid if I say anything nice about them, they’ll lose for sure.”
