STUMPING FOR OBAMA

Clinton: You Must Vote for Obama

Wednesday night at his DNC speech, Clinton was in typical form: "I want a man for president who had the good sense to marry Michelle Obama." While he was playful ("Heck, he even appointed Hillary!" he said of Obama), the former president was also firm: he argued to an enraptured crowd that Romney's tax plan "fails the arithmetic test" and embodies a “winner-take-all society” while Obama represents a “we’re-all-in-this-together-society.” Clinton also mocked the GOP’s attitude toward Obama's reelection as immature to a laughing crowd: “We left him a total mess, he hasn’t finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in." "No president—not me or any of my predecessors—could have repaired the damage he found in just four years." At the speech's end, Obama made a surprise visit on stage to shake Clinton's hand.
