Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: I'll campaign for Obama 'after the Jewish holidays'
Posted on 09/25/2008 2:55:56 PM PDT by Rummyfan
Bill Clinton praised Sarah Palin Wednesday, saying he found the Alaska governor an appealing person and her and her family gutsy, spirited and real.
I think that she and her husband and their kids come across gutsy, spirited and real, he said in an interview to be broadcast Wednesday night. I have significant disagreements with her about any number of social and economic issues but I find her an appealing person and I think that its best to say that Senator McCain looks like he knew what he was doing. He picked somebody who gave him a lot of energy, a lot of support.
"Are you kind of feeling Jewish that you're waiting until after the Jewish holidays?" asked King. "No. But I think it would be if we're trying to win in Florida, it may be that you know, they think that because of who I am and where my political base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the 'cracker vote' there.
"But Senator Obama also has a big stake in doing well in the Jewish community in Florida, where Hillary did very well and where I did very well. And I just think respecting the holidays is a good thing to do," he said.

Oy Vey!!!! Is this cracker for real?????
The ‘Toon is clearly telegraphing that he’s not really for Obama, he’s just going through the motions because he has to.
He’ll start campaigning after Passover.
Clinton is a modern-day Willie Stark. Always chasin’ the hick vote!
Note to Todd Palin: Watch this guy!
When's Hanukkah this year?
Why not wait till after Nov.4th.
McCain and Palin are real. They know what they're doing by their version of what is good for America.
Obama is cynical and trying to appeal by race.
Notice that Bill, ever the stickler for the precise meaning of words, didn’t specify which Jewich holiday he was referring to. Hanukkah begins on December 21.
He’s also inadvertently doing us a big favor in 2012, turning the base against Hillary with his constant campaigning for McCain. I’m hoping Kucinich will be the nominee in 2012.
Bammy is learning that if you have your “friend” Bill Klingtong “campaigning” for you, then you don’t need any enemies, LOL.
bill is toying with the ‘bams......my laugh of the day.
Yeah .... Hannukah. THEN he'll start working for "The Man!!"
...Or after Thankgiving. Whichever comes last.
After Mardi Gras, he will get right on it.
Quick, get the lysol. He thinks every woman just swoons over him. Yo Bubba, she’s a straighter shot than you.
By the way, where has Jesse Jackson been?
"You didn't say what year, did you?""
Does he mean Hannukah?
Sounds to me like Bill Clinton is campaigning for Palin.
I hope Bubba was wearing a bib when he met the Governor.
Bill has never amused me so much as he has this election season.
Wow, now clinton was not only the first black president, but the first jewish one as well.
I think that for Bill the end of the Jewish Holidays is "Next Purim." For those of you who don't know, that's Jewish for endless procrastination.
Todd should keep an eye on Klintoon around not just his wife, but his daughters:
...”I’ll get up 1st thing November 5th and start campaining”
I think he said after Oct 9, Yom Kippur. Joe Lieberman should tell him what Purim is.
This election season has been the funniest and most exhilarating one I have ever experienced. You never know what’s coming next. One could write a seven volume set on the 2008 Presidential elections.
i think he’s more concerned about Obama 08 which would be a total disaster, than think 4 years ahead.
I’ll stump for Obama
After I organize my sock drawer.
Next Clinton will be saying he’ll campaign for Obama after the Thanksgiving holidays. ;^D
I know! I could enjoy it a heckuva lot more though if the future of our country didn’t hang in the balance, LOL!
Any Jew who votes for Obama deserves to be buried underneath a pig farm.
I’m Jewish and Jewish liberals make me sick. They give a free pass to Black antisemites. Black people could burn down an entire Jewish neighborhood, and Jewish liberals would say “some dumb Jew must’ve said something to make those poor oppressed dears really mad, it’s our fault not theirs”.
Jewish liberals represent the majority of Jews. The Jews who danced around the golden calf were also the majority. So were the Jews who marched passively to their death during the Holocaust, believing right to the end that “the Germans weren’t that bad”.
Most Jews simply don’t know what’s good for them or who their real friends are.
Bill Clinton says he was sent by Obama to secure the “Cracker Vote”.
You know, they think that because of who I am and where my politic[al] base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the cracker vote there.
Yeah, Passover and Purim
Excellent point! Love the photos!
Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur
You may be right. Jews in Florida are not “crackers,” it’s those rednecks further north.
Indeed, one of Harold Ford Jr.’s relatives got in trouble for saying just such a word, and then made up a story that he really said “tracker.” If he said “cracker” he was being rude, but if he said “tracker,” he was being stupid.
The MSM bought it of course.
“Hey, crackers, I’m going to sweet talk y’all into voting for Obama” — Slick Willie.
Donm't know about 'exhilarating' but it has been weird. The books about this election will be categorized under fiction.
I thnk he means the holidays that “Jews for Jesus” celebrate, such as Christmas.
