Clinton refrained

BET was also appealing for help Friday for victims of a tragedy that struck the black community hard, and MTV planned its own concert for Saturday.

Former President Bill Clinton called in to BET's "S.O.S. (Saving Ourselves)" telethon to express support and was asked by co-host Steve Harvey what his administration would have done differently if it were in power during the hurricane.

Clinton refrained from criticizing President Bush, but talked about the importance he placed on the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"We always thought faster was better than slower," Clinton said.
Of course, that wasn't the policy when it came to Osama bin Laden. Bill was too busy playing golf.
