Former President Bill Clinton said President Barack Obama excelled Monday night at his final presidential debate meeting with Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

"I thought it was his best debate performance and I agree with the polls. I think he won," Clinton, in Chicago for the Mortgage Bankers Association Conference, said as he exited Gibson's restaurant in the Gold Coast neighborhood.

Monday's debate focused on foreign policy issues, and Clinton said Obama impressed him.

"You could see how hard he's worked in the last four years to to master that part of the job. You could just tell. And he did a really good job. He did a good job saying it was time to do nation building here at home and he did a good job explaining that you build the defense budget from the ground up based on the security threats the country faced," the 42nd president said as he made his way to an awaiting vehicle.
