President Clinton to hit campaign trail for Obama
Breitbart ^ | Sept. 10, 2008 | Nedra Pickler

Posted on 09/10/2008 3:46:36 PM PDT by madison10

NEW YORK (AP) - Barack Obama revealed Wednesday that former President Clinton, once the presidential nominee's nemesis, will campaign for him during the weeks leading up to Election Day.

"There's nobody smarter in politics," Obama said on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman," scheduled to air Wednesday night. "And he is going to be campaigning for us over the next eight weeks, which I'm thrilled by."

The two were scheduled to have lunch Thursday at Clinton's office in New York. Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said the former president would campaign for Obama at a yet-to-be announced site in Florida on Sept. 29, with plans for more fundraising and events in the works.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton already has been hitting the trail for Obama.

During the Democratic presidential primary, the former president acted as his wife's chief defender from Obama's successful challenge to her candidacy, which strained relations between him and Obama. Clinton portrayed Obama as too inexperienced for a presidential run, and Obama said sometimes it was hard to tell which Clinton he was running against.

The two didn't speak for nearly a month after the campaign ended, but their silence ended when Obama called and the former president offered to do whatever he could to help Obama win.

I’m sure B Hussein Obama feels great about this, given Clinton’s record of electing Dem candidates since leaving office. This coupled with his bone-head veep nominee makes the ticket a shoe-in.

That’s it, it’s over folks. Whenever Bubba campaigns for a candidate, that candidate is sure to lose.

Great...given Clinton's record with women and what is happening with Palin...this should complete the job of blowing both feet clean off Obama's campaign.

His opponent would tell you, Senator Obama isn't fit to sleep with pigs!

I'm here to tell you, my good friend Obama most certainly is fit to sleep with pigs!

Whooops, buddy, I shouldn't have said pigs ...

Yep.

This is the definition of desperation.

Things are pretty bad when you have to ask the “Stainer in Chief” to campaign for you.

Yeeeeahh... B Hussein O - send 'ol BJ out there...he likes women.

It just depends on what your definition of "LIKE" is. If it includes biting, raping, and fondling - he's your man!

“I think if you are a former president, you don’t take Cabinet positions,” (Obama said)

He might take “first man”, though, if ya give him the chance.

Now there is the kiss of death. Pack it in Bambi...you are done. Isn’t it unusual for a ex-president to be campaigning for another candidate? Don’t remember any republican past presidents doing that. Could be wrong.

Larry hinted that Barry’s may not be “traditionally” sized, or has some other unique qualities. In other words, it may not be “twue”.

Not exactly correct. Should be "President Clinton to hit the campaign trail to pick up chicks and jump start Hillary's 2012 Presidential run".
