PERRYSBURG, OH Pulling into the parking lot at Owens Community College in Perrysburg Thursday, I briefly wondered if I was in the right spot. I cruised through a roundabout, in the shadow of a painted silo and a giant windmill the tableau of rural past and green energy future no doubt a deliberate backdrop for an Obama campaign event featuring former President Bill Clinton.
The rock star of the campaign trail was still on his way as one straggling supporter from nearby Maumee and I squinted at each others smartphone maps to locate the rally. We found the schools half-full gymnasium, blocked off at half-court by a red vinyl curtain descended from the ceiling.
As Clinton took the stage, the crowd, estimated at 1,900 by the Toledo Blade, perked up. He addressed them with a smile and his patented husky, trail voice, damaged from workin so hard for you. He ticked off his recent campaign stops, saying hed lost his voice for a good cause before announcing to the crowd he was honored to be in Pennsylvania for President Obama.
OHIO, the crowd shouted at Clintons Bidenism as he corrected himself and pivoted into his stump speech. A prologue on Hurricane Sandy got a round of cheers for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

It could of been worse. He could have said Michigan.
Bidenism .....must be contagious.......
Clinton is clearly just going through the motions so they can’t claim he didn’t try to help. I highly doubt he, deep down, wants Obama to win. Whether it is bitterness, a feud, jealousy or maybe he REALLY wasn’t as far left..whatever.
