Former U.S. President Bill Clinton goes to pay tribute to late Vietnamese revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum in Hanoi, Vietnam

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Former President Clinton was swarmed for autographs, handshakes and photographs on the streets of Hanoi Wednesday by throngs of admirers whose warm welcome contrasted sharply with the restrained reception given President Bush last month.

Clinton, in town to sign an agreement between his foundation and the Vietnamese to get more AIDS drugs to children, left the Hilton Hotel in the center of Hanoi, crossed an intersection buzzing with motorbikes, and strolled toward Hoan Kiem Lake, the spiritual heart of the city.

"It feels great to be back," Clinton said as he set off for his stroll.

Followed by Secret Service agents and Vietnamese police, Clinton stopped along a half-mile route to chat with his Vietnamese admirers before making his way to an art gallery in Hanoi's Old Quarter and then to the tomb of Ho Chi Minh, who led Vietnam's communist revolution.

Wild Thing's comment......
So communist Clinton pays tribute to the man he was routing for during the war. I'm so sick of US leaders who pay tribute to the worst jackals of the world! The communists know their won kind.

A wonderful world we live in where ruthless dictators are praised and protected, dishonest heads of state are lionized and honest men who act only for the good of their nations are belittled and scorned.

I can't stand these traitors, Clinton, Carter, Gore, Kerry etc. I am sick of this shit! Hey Clinton just stay in Nam why don't you.

I would like somebody to pop this puss bag. Ma'm, please, even though Nam is commie it is still hallowed ground by all of the American Blood contained there. Please let him be a IED tester in Iraq.

Mark Krauss, it sure is. My heart hurts!!

I don't Clinton to be there, I don't want him to walk on the ground where our troops have stepped. Hell I don't want him walking the ground anywhere.

The man is truly a scumbag. And he visited Ho Chi Minh's grave, how touching, I wonder if he bothered to visit Khe Sanh, Chu Lai or any other place where Americans gave their lives so that this sonofabitch could freely walk around and virtually spit on their graves.

Clinton is a piece of F'n garbage.

Mark that is exactly what he is.

Mark - Clinton doesn't know about those battlefields, and doesn't care. He only cares about himself, not even his equally crappy wife.

However, be glad he did not visit, and desecrate our sacred memorials to valor and patriotism.

Yes, he is frig'n garbage!

Joseph McCarthy was right all along, McCarthy characterized President Truman and the Democratic party as soft on or even in league with the Communists, referring in 1954 to "twenty years of treason" on the part of the Democrats, 52 years later nothing has changed except the media is in full lockstep with them.

Shame his plane didn't leave without him. Could have left his bags on the tarmac. Add a note:

"Don't come home. Locks have been changed. Divorce papers will be served."
