Like Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton was a master at presidential diplomacy. This chapter is a chronicle of his March 1998 visit to South Africa and the many ways in which he charmed critics and made new friends for the United States, opening doors for U.S. business and developing allies for the pursuit of peace on the continent and in the larger world. Fulfilling a promise he had made at the White House when he first chose Joseph to be his ambassador, the president was received with great enthusiasm wherever he went in South Africa, in Parliament with elected representatives as well as in the streets of Soweto and elsewhere. The highlights of his visit and the accomplishment that followed are vividly described.
