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.

Husbands, hide the womenfolk...Bill’s comin’!
Yes, he was great at helping his wife win the nomination. LOL
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.
But I like it.
I look forward to hearing the draft dodger criticizing the war hero.
That’s it, it’s over folks. Whenever Bubba campaigns for a candidate, that candidate is sure to lose.
OH GOODIE...the kiss of death!!
In a year where I was planning to turn my TV and computer off and watch old movies until the new year, this certainly has turned into some primetime entertainment! You couldn’t make this stuff up!
Obama can’t seal the deal. he’s a loser. and goes begging for help
Is Obamarama mommy going to step in too??
Probably why Bubba agreed to do it. I mean how else could he repay O for the racist jabs he got?
That’s going to help McCain-Palin is my guess!
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 ...
Obama is the first black Bill Clinton!!!
This is the definition of desperation.
Things are pretty bad when you have to ask the “Stainer in Chief” to campaign for you.
Another entrant into “The Last Comic Standing”.
