The Other Clinton Speech

Okay, who are you and what did you do with Bill Clinton?

Last week it was, “Well, it depends on what you mean by…” Last night in Denver we get this unrestrained,
Everything I learned in my eight years as President and in the work I've done since, in America and across the globe, has convinced me that Barack Obama is the man for this job.

Barack Obama is ready to lead America and restore American leadership in the world. Ready to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Barack Obama is ready to be President of the United States.

Everything that Hillary failed to do on Tuesday, Bill did last night. He provided the personal endorsement, the character reference, the readiness and all. He named Obama as his worthy successor, assured the party that Obama would do an outstanding job, and wished Obama well.

So, let’s see the McCain campaign use any part of that for their nefarious purposes. I can see them sitting in their Denver tent last night, hopefully poised over their Macintoshes twirling their mustasches and finally leaning back and sighing, “Curses, foiled at last.”


  1. Agreed. Biden did pretty well, too. And: I don't think we have seen the last of Biden Jr (he apparently is that, just called Beau). Anyone who can bring Michelle Obama to tears is GOOD, never mind all the others he affected.

    Yeah, well, he wasn't the (almost and possible future) candidate, so he can (and has) said what he wanted. Much to HRC's chagrin, no doubt.

    But then again, like him or not, he is one good politician. I liked what Jayhawk said about the Repub's being foiled... good one!
