Former president Bill Clinton made an appearance during Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards and gave an inspirational introduction to Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln."

"A tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided Congress," Clinton began before describing the difficulties Lincoln had passing the 13th amendment. "Winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue. I wouldn't know anything about that," Clinton quipped to the delighted crowd.

"President Lincoln's struggle to abolish slavery reminds us that enduring progress is forged in a cauldron of both principle and compromise," Clinton continued. "This brilliant film shows us how he did it, and gives us hope that we can do it again."

"That was Hillary Clinton's husband," host Amy Poehler exclaimed after the surprise guest left the stage.

"That was Bill Rodham Clinton!" Tina Fey exclaimed.
