President Bill Clinton delivered a eulogy at the memorial for Helmut Kohl on Saturday. Bill and Hillary Clinton both held a deep affection for Kohl. There is no indication that Clinton was serving in any official capacity or who, if anybody, was leading a U.S. delegation, if any. My, my….

World leaders bid farewell to ‘patriot’ Helmut Kohl

The former German chancellor was remembered as both a German and European patriot, who paved the way to a united Europe.

Helmut Kohl is considered one of the great architects of the European Union

Past and present world leaders have bid farewell to Helmut Kohl, the German chancellor who helped unite Europe.

Mr Kohl, who died aged 87 on 16 June, was remembered as both a German and European patriot, who deserved “a place of honour in the European pantheon”.

The former chancellor becomes the first person to be honoured with an official memorial event by the European Union in the French city of Strasbourg.

Among the many dignitaries present at the memorial was former US president Bill Clinton, who thanked Kohl for giving “us the chance to be involved in something bigger than ourselves”.

“Bigger than our terms of office, bigger than our fleeting careers,” he said.

“Because all of us, sooner or later, will be in a coffin like that,” he added.

“And the only gift we can leave behind, is a better future for our children, and the freedom to do their own choices. Including their own mistakes.”

The 70-year-old politician said his wife, Hillary Clinton, said he loved Mr Kohl “because he was the only person with a bigger appetite for food than I have”.

“The 20th century in Europe really began on his watch,” Mr Clinton added.

If you’ve seen a Broadway show in the last six months or so, there’s a significant chance you saw a surprise double bill: the play or musical you paid for and a celebrity cameo by Hillary Clinton, smiling politely as the audience gave her another standing ovation. On Thursday, the former Democratic nominee, her husband Bill, and her daughter Chelsea attended a performance of Come From Away, a musical about the roughly 7,000 air travelers grounded in Gander, Newfoundland, after planes were rerouted following the aerial attacks on 9/11. Christopher Ashley took home a Tony for Best Direction for the production earlier this month.

The musical’s co-writer David Hein later praised the Clintons, who posed for photos with the cast, on Facebook. Hein wrote in part, “So many lines in the show resonated differently — especially the scene where passengers try to vote for a different destination and are told, “this is not a democracy.” Afterwards onstage, they were so gracious, taking pictures and speaking to each of us. President Clinton told Caesar one of his 9/11 stories, when he met a Muslim man who was afraid his countrymen would never trust him again. We and Sharon got to introduce our daughters to Chelsea. And Hilary told us, ‘this is a show that the world needs now.’ So honoured to have this story of Newfoundland kindness recognized and celebrated by them.”

Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Helmut Kohl

I am deeply saddened by the passing of my dear friend, Helmut Kohl, whose visionary leadership prepared Germany and all of Europe for the 21st century.

He was called upon to answer some of the most monumental questions of his time, and in answering them correctly he made possible the reunification of a strong, prosperous Germany and the creation of the European Union. I will never forget walking with him through the Brandenburg Gate in 1994 for a large rally on the eastern side, and seeing genuine hope in the eyes of tens of thousands of young people. I knew at that moment that Helmut Kohl was the man who could help them realize their dreams. History continues to prove that he delivered.

As the world remembers a leader who was strong in more than stature, Hillary and I send our thoughts and prayers to Maike, Helmut’s sons, Walter and Peter, and the people of Germany.

Last year, we all were so sure that this year she would be at Arlington laying wreaths. That was not to be. But despite the rain and chilly temps, Hillary marched in Chappaqua today with former President Bill Clinton and Governor Andrew Cuomo. The pipes and drums braved the weather in their rain gear. Our friend Oscar Flores marched too, as always!
