Well, Bill Clinton is campaigning for Barack Obama. Sort of. Except for the fact that he has more praise for Hillary, John McCain and Sarah Palin than for the Democratic party candidate. Thank heavens he didn’t mention Joe Biden.
However in a rare television interview tonight the former president called Republican presidential candidate John McCain “a great man” and praised GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin as an “instinctively effective candidate.”
On a day when Obama sought to convince voters that he’s best able to handle the economic crisis, the former president said it was his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, who gave today “the most detailed position.”
In an interview with CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, Clinton, who has tried to put to rest rumors of tensions between himself and Obama said, “I’ve never concealed my admiration and affection for Senator McCain. I think he’s a great man.
Oh, Bubba kept trying to swear that he thought Obama would win, but the conviction is not there – go read it for yourself. Note also the hint at a October Surprise that might turn the Obama campaign right on its ear.
Hmmm. One wonders of something is up.
