Bill Clinton: Dems Can Win

The Democrats’ most popular president—that’d be Bill Clinton—is hitting the campaign trail hard this week, and he’s insisting that his party still has a chance at salvaging their midterm prospects. “If we want it bad enough to go out there and work for it, I think we’ll get it,” Clinton told ABC News. “Reports of our demise have been exaggerated.” The former president also said he sees similarities to the election of 1994, in which Democrats were routed two years after Clinton took office and started an ambitious agenda. “There’s an almost inverse relationship in how much you accomplish and what people know about it.”
