In Late Night Rally, Bill Clinton Sings Obama’s Praises

Looks like Bill is jumping on the band wagon a bit late.

Was it Bill didn't want to do it? Or, was it Obama figured he didn't need him?

I am down here in Florida and this event and this event is not big news.

Barack Obama and ex-President Bill Clinton attended their first rally together, forming a small mutual admiration society before a crowd of about 35,000.

Clinton has in the past been criticized by Democrats for being too complimentary of Obama’s rival John McCain, but on Wednesday night he lavished praise on the Illinois senator, starting with his choice of vice president, Sen. Joe Biden. “He hit that one out of the park folks,’’ Clinton said. He then launched into a complicated checklist, calling Obama a smart, competent and efficient chief executive. “Folks, we can’t fool with this — our country hangs in the balance,’’ Clinton said. “Folks, this man should be our president.’’

For his part, Obama praised Clinton’s presidency. “In case all of you forgot, this is what it’s like to have a great president,’’ Obama said. “We all wish the last eight years looked more like the Clinton years.’’ Obama concluded by saying he was proud to be friends with the former first couple.
