Called Out by Republicans, Clinton Answers in Masterful Convention Speech
Bill killed.Nominating Barack Obama for a second term, the former president brought to bear the full weight of his political experience and forensic skill Wednesday night, on behalf of a man who was once his adversary. Rewritten up until the final hour before he took the podium, this was among his finest campaign speeches, even surpassing the address he delivered at the last Democratic convention in 2008. Clinton presented an exhaustive argument for Obama (and against the Republicans) with four key elements:A lesson in presidential economics delivered in professorial style, acknowledging...

-quote-"As Bill Clinton walked out onto the stage of the Democratic National Convention last night, there was love in the air. Television cameras scanned the faces in the crowd and it was as if each man and each woman, regardless of their ages or where they came from, was seeing again the person who first stole their hearts. But however deep their affections, however dizzying their passion, it was clear that it was at least equaled by the love of the speaker for the crowd he faced, for the role he was playing and for the limelight he once again commanded.
Throughout Clinton's 49-minute address, at turns both masterful and meandering, the intensity of the love affair grew. At times, it was almost too much to watch. One woman on whom the cameras lingered for a moment was so close to a swoon that I thought she would topple over at any minute and that, in any event, she would never again look at her husband or lover again in the same away. They would always be second best."-unquote-.

Anyone who was around for the 8 years that Clinton was in office knows that he did a great job well in office. As for the affairs as 1 poster says I say this Kennedy had his own affairs too & so many other people as well. If we have to judge peoples job performance on their personal lives then so be it but I will not!

Well said! For the critics of Clinton that only think of an affair with an intern; it says more about them than it does about Clinton.

Didn't more American soldier die under Clinton than any other President? And there was no actual war?
And all you can say is he cheated on his wife. Kind of sad, but if that's the worst thing he did as President, then I'd say that's not bad. No Watergate, no Oilwar..oops, I mean "Spreading Democracy" to Iraq, decent economy.
Basically if he did such a good job that all you can talk about is the chick under his desk, then I don't care who was under his desk. Get over it, Hillary did."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma
