Clinton (Bill)


I had forgotten how good a speaker Bill Clinton is:

The choice is clear. The Republicans will nominate a good man who served our country heroically and suffered terribly in Vietnam. He loves our country every bit as much as we all do. As a Senator, he has shown his independence on several issues.

But on the two great questions of this election, how to rebuild the American Dream and how to restore America's leadership in the world, he still embraces the extreme philosophy which has defined his party for more than 25 years, a philosophy we never had a real chance to see in action until 2001, when the Republicans finally gained control of both the White House and Congress. Then we saw what would happen to America if the policies they had talked about for decades were implemented.

Exactly.

I also loved the line about the world responding to the power of our example, not the example of our power. And could there possibly have been a better demonstration of why he won twice and Kerry didn't win? But to be fair, no one should have to follow a (Bill) Clinton speech.
