It’s Me, Bill

Clinton to Join Obama Fundraiser

Bill Clinton had some harsh words for the junior senator on the 2008 campaign trail when Obama was taking on his wife, Hillary, in the Democratic primary, but the former president will take another step in his formal support for the White House incumbent at a Virginia fundraiser tonight. The appearance marks the first time that Bill has openly campaigned for Obama. Five hundred guests are expected at a minimum-$1,000-per-ticket event at the home of Terry McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. The fundraiser will be the first of three at which Clinton will accompany Obama, who officially kicks off his campaign next weekend at two rallies in Virginia and the swing state of Ohio.
