Bill Clinton To The Rescue!
It was only a matter of time until Sen. Hillary Clinton went whining to husband Bill for some help. Now, we like Bill. We like his misguided ways and charming southern buffonery. But by coming out swinging in Hillary's defense he risks tarnishing his legacy as kingly, rogue fuck up. His new role as errand boy makes us a little uncomfortable. But she is, after all, his wife. And these are the kinds of things you do, right? Hello? Anyway, yesterday while stumping in Las Vegas, Bill told a crowd that the recent attacks on Hillary over driver licenses for illegal immigrants were dirty politics (gasp!) and compared them to the swiftboat ads that sunk Kerry in 2004. Did someone say Willie Horton? After the jump, Clinton tells Vegas this election belongs to them. Super!
"So do I hope you vote for my wife? You bet I do. It'd be good for America, and good for the world. But, more than that I came here to tell you today, don't you dare let them take this election away from you. This belongs to you."
