The Clintons Stepping Up For Obama

Senator Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton will soon return to the campaign trail.

Mr. Clinton, who is currently in Europe, told reporters through a spokesperson today that he’s “committed” to helping Barack Obama win the White House. Said Matt McKenna, “President Clinton is obviously committed to doing whatever he can and is asked to do to ensure Senator Obama is the next president of the United States.” Neither Clinton nor the Obama campaign would elaborate on what role Mr. Clinton will play in the general election.

Mrs. Clinton, meanwhile, will appear with Obama on Friday in Unity, New Hampshire. And trust that the former presidential hopeful had a bit more to say than her husband:

We’re going to work very hard to elect Sen. Obama our president. And we’re going to work very hard to add to our numbers here in the Senate… I’m just hoping that we’ll have a very significant victory this November… I am rolling up my sleeves and getting back to work.

While Senator Clinton’s presence will help iron out remaining wrinkles in the party – and woo the ever-important women’s vote, Bill will most likely be sent to blue collar communities to rustle of the “Reagan Democrats” who may be rethinking Republican rival John McCain.

      I really hope that the Clintons have the heart to undo all of the harm that they have done and that they can make it believable to the public.
      Her person, to me, is in need of salvaging. I want to believe that she has the kind of character which will permit an expediture of energy suficient to that with which she did damage, and sufficient to prove that she believes in what she preached.

      I still hope for a unity ticket + think it might just happen, after all.

      As for the photo, I think it’s cute. In a goofy, teenaged way.

      Look at the title of this post. Listen to all that Bill and Hillary Clinton have said about supporting Obama. Realize how important the support of the Clintons support is.

      Then look at the very first comment on this post.

      It is a negative about Hillary Clinton. It is the same with the MSNBC pussy pundits.

      I really don’t understand what the endgame is with Clinton bashers. At this point the only ones that should be concerned about Hillary Clinton are those that live in her district where she is their Senator. If she is a shitty Senator (and she wouldn’t be the first) vote her out of office.

      However, there are millions of us who support the Clintons and have for years. We have made our switch over to Obama with ease. We appreciated that Hillary is helping bringing the party together to see that another Repuke is not elected.

      At some point, can we just get off her fucking ass?
