Obama finds key asset in Bill Clinton’s support
David MaranissCHARLOTTE — Four years ago in Denver, Bill Clinton was given the assignment of making the world believe that he liked Barack Obama and wanted him to be president. As one longtime confidant put it, “He had to go out there and say, ‘Yeah, Obama beat the blank out of me and my wife, but still, you should be with him.’ ” But that was then.
On Wednesday night here, Clinton will be tasked with a mission that has largely frustrated President Obama: Cut through the political clutter and clarify the choice in November. Explain, in his inimitable way, in language that persuadable voters in middle-class America can understand, what Obama has accomplished and why his economic policies would pull the nation out of tough times and GOP alternatives would not.
