Bill Clinton Rob Ford

Bill Clinton gives his take on Rob Ford

As if any more proof was needed to confirm that Rob Ford is an international sensation, the latest big name to give his take on our mayor is Bill Clinton. On Jimmy Kimmel for an interview last night, the former US president had a chuckle or two at Ford's expense, even as he remained ever diplomatic. "He has absolutely destroyed every stereotype people have about Canadians," Clinton said of Ford. "You know, the Canadians are upbeat, optimistic, can-do, they are embracing, they are inclusive... Everything I ever believed about Canadians... good ol' Rob has proved stereotypes are not good."

Earlier in the show Kimmel took Ford to task for his voting errors at yesterday's city council meeting, noting that he was the first politician "to take a stand against athletic excellence and Nelson Mandela." Yup, the hits just keep coming.
