Former President Bill Clinton is sounding off on the big plastic horns being tooted at the World Cup matches in South Africa. Clinton says he's a fan of the vuvuzela, now that he's heard them in person.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. When Bill Clinton ran for president, he famously played saxophone on TV. Now he's offering a music review of the vuvuzela. The former president is at the World Cup in South Africa. He gave his opinion of the horn blown by thousands in the stands. He says it's wonderful and that all the random blowing develops a rhythm. You can almost see an aide gently pulling the former president away as he adds that he'll be taking one home as a souvenir.

It's MORNING EDITION.
