If anyone can get a crowd on their feet it's Bill Clinton.

Now if you're asking how the whores in the media report on Clinton's public appearances, then it really doesn't matter what he does.

Is that nearly every candidate came to my little area. Hillary, Bernie, and the pub clowns Trump, Cruz and Kasich.

Bill also made an appearance.

Seeing Hillary and then Bill Clinton in a matter of a few weeks, was really awesome.

I'm not sure when or why but he isn't the same charismatic, political tactician that he once was. Hillary is far better at this now than he is. He just needs to keep a low profile and get out of the way.

This move he's made makes no sense at all. Maybe he's worried Hillary will do a better job than he did?

Is does the Republicans or Trump want Bill Clinton on the campaign trail, hell no, they don't have an answer for Bill Clinton. He is respected by many and is able to draw crowds, for this reason he is an asset to the campaign.

I'd like Hillary a whole lot more if he wasn't a presence in her campaign, or her administration.

So as far as I go he is a big Hurt!
