As I wrote back in April 2008, as the Barack & Hillary Show was headed to Oregon, I am a Clinton man. I am in politics today because I was inspired by his call to service in 1992.
The messages and themes of that 1992 campaign live on today -- in the campaign of Barack Obama. It's Barack Obama who is inspiring yet another new generation of Americans. It's Barack Obama who is fighting against the entrenched Washington insiders that stifle debate and impede progress. It's Barack Obama that understands that "hope" isn't just a bumper sticker, but a vision and promise of a better country.
I have no doubt in my mind that if his wife weren't running, Bill Clinton would be Barack Obama's #1 supporter in this presidential campaign.
I love Bill Clinton. And all these years later, I still believe in him and his vision. Like many people I know, I work in politics today because of his call to service. I am a Clinton man.
And that's why I support Barack Obama for President.
And that's why I'm thrilled that President Clinton is taking to the airwaves to make the case for President Obama's re-election.
Starting today, this ad is airing in New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, and Nevada. Enjoy.
