'Brilliant' Obama doing a better job than he's given credit for: Bill Clinton

     US President Barack Obama's Democratic Party predecessor Bill Clinton has said that Obama is doing a 'better job than he's given credit for.' Speaking in Cape Town, Clinton said that public perception of the president has lagged behind what he has done to benefit the country. "I think he's done a better job than he's given credit for. I feel very strongly about this," Clinton said. Clinton, who, like Obama, saw his polling numbers dip dramatically during his second year in office, said that Obama is not fully responsible for how he is perceived, adding that a dip in approval is "not avoidable" in an economic downturn. "Until people feel good about their own lives, they're not going to feel good about their president. And there's nothing you can do about that," Polotico quoted Clinton, as saying. "He is a brilliant, articulate and, I think, an exceedingly empathetic person," the former president said of Obama.
