“Folks, I was shaking hands and taking a few pictures backstage. This fellow looked at me and he said, ‘I just want you to know, the people you’re about to see are not bitter. They’re proud,’” Bill Clinton said at a campaign event for his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.
The former president also took the opportunity to respond to Obama’s assertions that small town America was not made better off economically during the eight years of the Clinton administration.
“Do you agree with that?,” he asked.
“No,” the crowd shouted in response.
“I just thought I’d get a few witnesses here. You know, I’m a Baptist. On Sunday, we look for witnesses,” replied Clinton.
