President Clinton honored former Sen. William Fulbright as a passionate political fighter, tempered by reason, who "changed our country and our world forever and for the better." Clinton eulogized Fulbright at a Washington National Cathedral memorial service for the former Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, who died of a stroke at 89 last week. "In the work he did, the words he spoke and the life he lived, Bill Fulbright stood against the 20th century's most destructive forces and fought to advance its brightest hopes," said Clinton.
