Bill Clinton - Nobody Does It Better.

Whatever some Dems might think of the compromises he made as President,

1. Nobody Does Politics Better. At DNC 2012 WJC Bill exactly the right notes. He said he worked on the speech week after week. I believe it.

2. In the 1990s WJC held back 'The Stupid'. No, not entirely honestly, nor 100%, but, if you expect truth from politicians, finish High School.

3. A Patriot.

Put aside cynicism for just one minute; OK five minutes. Rather than "Hillary 2016", could it be that maybe, a two term President of The United States of America might actually be a Patriot. 'Believe in America' was fake as a $3 Bill. WJC is an American as The Constitution. Maybe, just maybe, when WJC talks about 'Poor Kids' he cares? Been there - still feel it.

4. HRC in '16? Bring It On.

5. It's The Economy Stupid.

I think we and PBO have continued that bigger tent tradition by accepting folks with different thinking. We will continue to expand our numbers as the few remaining sane republicans move from being repubs or Independents to the Democratic party. Repubs demanding purity will make them irrelevant in the future.

He loves campagining.It shows.He appeals to voters of all races.Some whites who have deserted Gore,Kerry,and Obama liked him
since they saw him as one of them or good old boy.

In 2014 I expect to see him do a lot of campaging for dems.Send him to help dems take back governorships In Florida,Ohio,Michigan,
and Wisconsin.

He went to ND and we won that seat.Yes we had a great candiate.And story being missed that race was won because of native
Americans.

Come 2016 we have a former popular president while republicans have noone In the league.
