Former President Clinton touches on spat between wife and Democrat Barack Obama

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former President Clinton says he doesn't want to get in the middle of the spat between his wife and her Democratic rival Barack Obama -- but he has weighed in anyway.

The feud began when Senator Obama said during a candidate's forum that he would hold meetings with the leaders of rogue nations without preconditions. Senator Clinton said she wouldn't do it without knowing their intentions. Clinton later called Obama "naive." He called her position "Bush-Cheney lite."

Today, the former president says "there's more than one way to practice diplomacy."

And he says all the major Democratic contenders vigorously agree there should be more diplomacy. Practicing the art himself, Clinton told a gathering of the Democratic Leadership Council they can decide for themselves who they think is right.
