ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama had to wait on former president Bill Clinton to climb the stairs to get on Air Force One to depart Israel, after the two attended the funeral for late Israeli Leader, Shimon Peres. Obama shouted "Bill, let's go!" as he waited on him to climb the steps leading to the airplane. Peres, a former president and prime minister who died on Wednesday at the age of 93, shared a Nobel Prize for the interim land-for-peace accords he helped reach with the Palestinians as Israel's foreign minister in the 1990s. In Obama's eulogy of Peres, he gently reminded Israeli and Palestinian leaders of the "unfinished business of peace."
