How Clinton plans to upstage Obama at the DNC

Not since the feud between Ted Kennedy and Jimmy Carter tore the Democratic Party apart more than 30 years ago have two panjandrums of the party loathed each other quite as much as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
And yet this week, television viewers will be treated to a remarkable spectacle at the Democratic National Convention: Clinton will stand before a cheering throng of delegates on Thursday night and deliver a primetime speech nominating Obama, a man he once dismissed as incompetent, as president of the United States.
The Clinton-Obama feud is the worst-kept secret in the Democratic Party. It traces back to the bruising 2008 primary campaign, when Obamas surrogates lambasted Bill and Hillary for being racists and a Clinton aide said of Obama that he embraces the politics of trash. The animosity still stirs such deep emotions that a year ago Clinton held a secret meeting of friends and political advisers at his home in Chappaqua and urged his wife to challenge Obama for the partys presidential nomination in 2012.
According to two people who attended the meeting, Hillary rejected her husbands advice that she run against a sitting president of her own party. But that didnt stop Bill Clinton from going on a rant about Obama.
Ive heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than Ive heard from Obama, my sources quoted Clinton as saying. I have no relationship with the president none whatsoever. Obama doesnt know how to be president. He doesnt know how the world works. Hes incompetent. Hes an amateur!

Maybe he will nominate Hillary instead.
Clinton will give a rousing speech for Obama, and if he nominates Hilary it will be for VP.
“And so Clinton was signed on to remind voters of the glory days of a Democratic presidents economy”.
...I always look for this sentence in anything about Clinton because it needs to be said...”ONLY BECAUSE OF A REPUBLICAN CONGRESS”
Agreed. This is misinformation tossed out there to spark interest in what will be a completely pro-Obama show.
The Obama toadies keep wanting to know what he is gonna say and he keeps blowing them off cuz he is the only Dem prez to get reelected (thanks twice Ross Perot you infamous treasonous bastard!!!) so the Obamanoids can do nothing.
Fact is, the evil impeached convicted liar pervert who lost his law license is gonna make Obama Jesus Christ's virtuous twin so that PIAPS will be POTUS in 2016...
...Dick Morris will tell you I just did.
If Bill Clinton feels this way about Obama, just imagine how Jimmah Carter really thinks about him.....
If Clinton is supposed to remind voters of the glory days of a Democrat president’s economy, won’t some voters start thinking of the dismal economic record of the current Democrat president??? And couldn’t such thoughts actually persuade some voters to reject this current Democrat president???
I wonder how Obama’s gonna like hearing the spontaneous chanting “Clinton! Clinton!Clinton!” that’s sure to break out when he Clinton makes his appearance.
Clinton’s speech is actually Wednesday and very few will be watching.
I think this week's shenanigans will be very instructive as to the future of this campaign.
Slick is a master at undermining. He and hitlery’s plan is on 2016 either as saviour from the nobama depression or from Romney’s economic recovery. The dems have always done better following a GOP lead economic boom when the voters see everyone as flush with $.
The worst move the Dems ever made was diss Hillary for the empty suit. Obama’s set race relations back years. People won’t fall for the “isn’t it wonderful, he’s black” argument for a while.
A conservative black president might have permanently rid this country of racism. But that’s not what the race baiters want - too much power in keeping that spectre going.
Will somebody here watch???
The chant will be “BJ, BJ, BJ...”
Knowing the clintons, this is misinformation put out by the clintons themselves. Recall when just a couple weeks before their books came out, they both put out misinformation that they hadn’t even delivered finished manuscripts to their publishers.
Like standing in back of the thong of a pizza-delivery itern? More discussion about secret sauce?

boring stories of glory days
