Skip to comments.How Clinton Plans to Upstage the President
Posted on 09/02/2012 6:26:25 AM PDT by NoobRep
The Obama campaign has insisted on seeing the speech before Clinton delivers it, and Clinton has just as insistently refused to show it to them. As a result, no one not even the president knows what Clinton intends to say. This has led some Democratic insiders to speculate that Clinton will make not-so-flattering remarks about the last four years of Democratic rule in the White House.

Billy Jeff may be making the first “Hillary 2016!” speech at Obama’s convention...that’s how politics is played in Arkansas.
After he is done speaking Monica is going to come out from underneath it!
Will he address another empty chair?
Bubba is a fairly intelligent man, a rotten SOB , yes,but fairly intelligent.
How can he support what has happened in the last 4 years under Obama?
If he supports Obama he shows himself to be either a traitor or a fool.
Maybe Billy will get revenge in his own inimitable Arkancide way and say “It’s true! Barry WAS born in Kenya!”
I doubt that, am sure there’s been coordination betwen Clinton and the Obama Campaign on the speech ... possibly with the Obama team actually writing it.
This is a marketing sales ploy to ramp up the drama and entice people to watch the convention. My guess is that Clinton will heap generous praise on Obama ...
Dollar Bill is going to going to put lipstick on a pig.
Even Rush had stated that his insiders tell him Clinton has never gotten over Obama’s team calling him a racist. I believe Klein that there is no love lost here.
I don’t think it matters. Clinton can’t, wont, do something they would instigate a civil war in the Party. His and Hillary’s future as elder statesmen and Chelsea’s political future would be damaged.
I saw Clinton doing an Obama plug during the Auburn game last night. I thought he was very effective. He could be a huge asset for Obama if used correctly, and if his heart is in it.
Similar rumors surrounded the 2008 Convention/Primaries/Election, when BJ was asked to help Obama, after Obama took Hillary out in the primaries. BJ stayed loyal.
BJ will toe the party line. He will make a good speech, supportive of the current administration. BJ will be the good-ole-boy and play along.
I agree! Clinton is too loyal a Democrat to go against the nominee. He wants the entire party, including the Obamunists, behind him and Hillary for 2016. If he burns bridges with them now he’ll just have to rebuild them later.

I do....... boring platitudinous drivel
