(Reuters) - Former President Bill Clinton believes a candidate with Republican Mitt Romney's business success and political background is qualified for the White House, but he said Democratic President Barack Obama would be a better choice for the country.
"There is no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold," Clinton said of Romney in an interview with CNN on Thursday.
"But they have dramatically different proposals, and it's my opinion, anyway, that the Obama proposals and the Obama record is far better for the American economy and most Americans than those that Governor Romney has laid out," Clinton said of his fellow Democrat. "That's what the election ought to be about."

Why do I hear Clinton sneakily saying “Romney qualified” and not the same for BO?
That’s probably the best the Obama campaign will get out of Bubba. He’ll go through the motions of supporting Obama but it will be obvious he really does not like the guy.
THAT was all but a Romney endorsement!
Parce his quotes and you’ve got Obama NOT getting up every day going to “work”, OR performing ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS, OR saving companies, no STERLING CAREER, or QUALIFIED, OR talking about J-O-B-S.
That was code for the fire alarm if anyone was listening.
Hillary must be really sick of Barky and shared the facts a bit with Bill boy.
Also, what was Bill boy saying about Obama’s plan was better.........for MOST Americans? But not all. Wonder who he believes Obama is shafting?
Is this clown still around??? Some people will believe ANYTHING!!! Thanks for your input Bubba, too funny.
Mitt has permission! Oh, joy!
The rest of the comment that Bill didn't say, but intimated:
...much better than a man who was just a community organizer and two year, do-nothing Senator with no business or administrative experience.
Looks like Bill just gave Obama a left-handed compliment. Clinton...the master of implying the unsaid...and infamous for his word-games...if you know what "is" is.
Could Bill Clinton be Zer0’s vice presidential running mate? He is now in Wisconsin, campaigning with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett as he looks to unseat Gov. Scott Walker in next week’s recall election. If he succeeds, it would place him in the driver’s seat to replace Bite-me, Biden.
As a southpaw, I am a little tired of hearing about “left-handed compliments.” As a Southerner, I am a little tired about people always saying “things are going south” when the going gets tough.
My feewings are hurt. Call a wambulance. I want damages. Maybe a class action is appropriate.
I am a little serious about the foregoing, but not much. Of the two examples cited, it would be far more appropriate to say “things went north” when the SHTF. See Detroit for example.
As to the subject, Bill and Hill both hate Zero. That has been obvious for a long time. Nothing stellar about Zero except that he is lost in space.
lol bubba hates obamao.
odumbo is so stupid he keeps bubba on the payroll.
No - well, not per our Constitution.
An unqualified man making comments on someone elses qualifications.
Clinton can’t be VP as he is no longer eligible to be POTUS.
Hildabeast on the other hand...
