Crowley: Looks like yesterday's gone

 Bill Clinton back in 1992.
Bill Clinton back in 1992.

DENVER (CNN) - They played Bill Clinton's signature 1992 song as he walked into the convention center in 2008. The refrain: "Don't Stop Thinkin' About Tomorrow."

Watch: Bill Clinton says Obama's right for the job

The other part of that refrain sticks out tonight: "Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone."

    Oh, is there no end to Clinton? Pizza, cigars, interns, White Water, Vince Foster, blue dresses, Somalia, bombed out milk plants....
    Jennifer Flowers, etc. On it goes and still he has fans. But so does Michael Jackson.

  5. Clinton, no, wait, McCain Supporter

    Hardly Clinton's best speech since he left the White House. David Gergen hasn't been paying attention if he really believes that.

    Having done their duty, Bill Clinton doesn't have to go through the Celebrity in a Stadium nonsense. Apparently Hillary can't get out of it. I'm planning on having a hang nail myself, so I won't be able to watch.

    Well, Bill Clinton did not hold back. I'm excited for Obama/Biden in 08

    So all the idiot pundits (CNN MSNBC FOX...) who have been fear mongering instead of reporting these last two days have egg all over their faces. That is for sure.

    "Oh... she didn't say that he's ready to be Commander in Chief..."
    "Her body language looked blah blah"

    Please, shut up and report what is happening!

    QUIT EDITORIALIZING AS THINGS HAPPEN IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE IDIOTS
    (well thought out editorials and commentary are great after WATCHING and REFLECTION)

    I am so grateful and proud of President and Senator Clinton. We haven't always had the best choices for candidates in presidential elections. This year truly was an exception. As Democrats, this year we had two exceptional candidates - both of whom truly offered the hope of transformational leadership for America. Despite being a long-standing supporter of the Clintons, I decided early to support Senator Obama.

    Too much has been said about the question as to whether Senator and President Clinton would support Senator Obama. I never had any doubt.

    Thank you President Clinton for doing what was right - not just for the Democratic party, but for our country. The GOP message of fear didn't work in 1992. And if we're strong, they'll fail again this year.

    Nobody knows better than Bill Clinton. Barack Obama is ready to lead ... he is ready to be President of this country we all love so much.

    SURELY THOSE WHO DO NOT LEARN FROM HISTORY'S MISTAKES ARE BOUND TO REPEAT THEM. GO AHEAD AND ELECT ANOTHER PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST MINDED BEGINNER TO OFFICE. REMEMBER HERBERT HOOVER. WE'LL ALL LIVE IN OBAMAVILL'S AND RIDE IN OBAMA WAGONS. THE WORLD IS A DANGEROUS PLACE FOR BEGINNERS. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LIKE THE FOLKS OF HAMLIN HAVE SIGNED A CHECK THEIR CHILDREN CANNOT CASH.

    Tonight was your last night Bill. Your gave a good speech. But it did not seem that your heart was really in the words

    Goodnight Mr. President. Too bad there are not more like you in the DNC or the GOP.

    Obama is not the right choice.

    Bill did what he was forced to do. Obama is not ready to lead this country.

  15. Clinton, No Wait, McCain Supporter 2

    Ha! loved that hang nail part!
    I'm with you. Enough of this imposter joke of a candidate. Anybody out there is truly believes that Obama is "ready" to lead is naive. How exactly has he proved that he's "ready to lead?" He won't take responsibility that it is up to him, to win or lose, in this election. When will he and his supporters quit blaming the Clintons for everything? Hmmm? Still waiting.

    LOVE BILL AND HILLARY! Never Obama!

  17. No Way, No How, No George McCain!

    "Oh, is there no end to Clinton? Pizza, cigars, interns, White Water, Vince Foster, blue dresses, Somalia, bombed out milk plants….
    Jennifer Flowers, etc. On it goes and still he has fans."

    Yet it is Bush who killed 4,000 fighting men and women in a war with a country that did not attack us.

  18. Obama/Biden

    It is ridiculous what the republican had done to this country in eight years. Coming from economics surplus from Bill Clinton to deep debt to China. This republican government is handing their white plate over to China and begging to barrow money from them. This has never been the US. Most of the time it always been the other way around. We are the one that used to lend money to the world.
    These republican think that they have not done enough to the country and try to scare you away from a chance to take our country back. No way, No how, No McCain.

  19. No Hillary = No Obama

    Well, that's what CNN and the Democratic party wishes. Dream on. No Obama, no way, no how.

  21. Hispanic for Obama - Ricky

    You are truely not a Clinton supporter if you do not respect their wish to vote for Obama. They put their party ahead because they know it's the right to do. Obviously some of you aren't that intelligent. Risking another 8 years of McCain. By that time the U.S. will be a 3rd world country.

    Please do whats right and vote Obama/Biden 08!!!!

    I love the Clintons. I'm still not convince that Barack Hussain Obama is ready to be the next commander in chief.
