|I’ve still got it.|
This is according to Sen. Chuck Schumer. I’m not exactly sure why Schumer is the go-to guy for Bill’s schedule, but apparently he has some inside knowledge.
If you were asleep last night, or maybe had some need to watch the New York Giants get embarrassed by the Dallas Cowboys, you might not know that, according to nearly everyone, Bill Clinton gave one of the most impressive political speeches ever heard as he nominated Barack Obama for a second term (unless you’re Charles Krauthammer or Jennifer Rubin, in which case it was one of the worst political speeches ever heard).
As BuzzFeed reports:
Clinton’s well-received speech Thursday night transformed him from an uneasy presidential ally into the central defender of Obama’s record and promoter of his right to a second term. He is particularly effective for two reasons: His appeal to white working class Democrats who are this year’s key swing voters; and the fact that many of the season’s Republican attacks are based on allegations that Obama has broken with a more centrist Clinton legacy.
