If you’ve glanced at any of the major news outlets this morning, you already know that Bill Clinton hit a giant home run at the Democratic National Convention last night.

“Bill Clinton’s speech reminded many Americans why he remains our country’s most beloved and naturally talented politician, for all his faults,” writes CNN’s Alan Brinkley.

OK, so yea, the guy knows how to deliver – but viewers last night also remarked about just how good the former Pres looked. While we’ve been following Clinton for some time now – from the awesome work of his foundation to his amazing transition to a vegan diet – for others, last night was the first time in a long time that they had seen the 66-year-old.

It was actress Olivia Wilde who started the compliments flowing with this tweet.

Yes, the vegan fox. Fantastic. Other tweets filled with compliments and hilarity continued to roll in:

Clinton, who credits researchers like Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn for helping him make the lifestyle switch, has lost over 24 pounds and says he feels better than ever.

“I essentially concluded that I had played Russian roulette because even though I had changed my diet some and cut down on the caloric total of my ingestion and cut back on much of the cholesterol in the food I was eating, I still — without any scientific basis to support what I did — was taking in a lot of extra cholesterol without knowing if my body would produce enough of the enzyme to support it, and clearly it didn’t or I wouldn’t have had that blockage,” he said in 2011. “So that’s when I made a decision to really change.”

We’re happy to still have you around Bill – and wish you many, many more years of kicking ass as a “vegan fox” on the national stage.
