(CNN) – Barack Obama and Bill Clinton’s offices released a joint statement Thursday after the two met in New York.
“President Clinton and Senator Obama had a great conversation in Harlem today. They discussed the campaign briefly, but mostly talked about how the world has changed since September 11, 2001,” it read.
"Sen. Obama praised the work of the Clinton Foundation around the world and President Clinton applauded Sen. Obama's historic campaign which has inspired millions around the country.
"They also spoke about what the next President can do to help make the economy work for all Americans, as it did under President Clinton, and ensure safety and prosperity far beyond the coming the election. President Clinton said he looks forward to campaigning for Senator Obama later this month.”
I love this pic,
our country will be back.
What did Bill tell Obama to help the economy. Cut the military budget and cut military pay raises so they go form being 15% behind the civilian population to 21% behind the civilian population in pay. In the US Navy I did not benefit from the Clinton Economy Bubble. Also did Bill tell him to let companies such as Enron, WorldCom and others to bilk their employees and stock holders as happened starting in 1996 under Bill!
McSame/Palin take note. Enjoy the interest you have gained, for it will be the highlight of your careers. You both will be able to say that you almost won the election. All of this attention is fun right now because Palin has been kept in seclusion, but as we get closer to Nov. seriousness will take center stage & Obama will be victorious.
Obama/ Biden 08
4 months ago: Obama can't win. We don't need a job training for President.
4 months later: Obama will win.... because I say so!!!!
Bill Clinton, you disgusted me!
Good to see Bill Clinton "on board." There is no doubt that the best man will win!
Maybe 'ol slick Billy was telling Osama how to get distracted by fat chicks, when the terrorists in the world are plotting acts of terror in the US. Thank you Bill for being totally useless and for not having any morals or values as POTUS.
I think Bill, Hillary and Joe Biden said what they really feel and is the truth ,he is not experienced enough, before Obama got the nomination. Now they are saying what they have to say to keep the democratic party together.
Use to respect Clinton, till he became a flip-flopper. He knows Obama is not ready to be President.
It is not only B.Clinton that we need in this time. We need all Americans with little commonsense and are normal. I am really scared about the prospect of Gov. Palin as V.P. What is she going to say to our adversaries? Talk to them in tounges? It is very, very, scary.
Together we all shall sprint to the finish line.
No matter who speaks for him , in my book his back ground is to scarey and shakey and to look at him leading this country with Pelosi and Reid is terrorfing. It is good for him that Hillery and Bill both are so married to the DNC. I wouldn't trust him out of ear shot.
NOOBAMA ON MY BALLOT!!! No matter who is backing him or if he was the only one running.
Look at your Ticker and the headlines involving Obama, McCain and Palin and tell me do you think your coverage of the candidates is reputable, balanced and fair. The stories about Obama are positive and all the stories about McCain and Palin are negative.
Why ask for Bill Clinton's help now?
***Hillary Clinton 2012***
Its all about McCain and Obama and i'm still waiting for McCain and the Hockey Mom to Tell me what they going to do for me when it comes to health, education, fuel, and my future for the last two weeks its been country first, then experience, then change, then reform please convince me at least Obama is tryin on the issues and try to meet with Clinton to see the way forward THis shows me he understands that its not about Him but about Us the American People
Everytime Obama says something stupid, he covers it by saying that
its all "silly politics". Well this is silly politics. How could be be so
arrogant by buttering up the Clintons. Whats wrong with you, bill
and Hillary. I was democrat, but know longer. I see the light
What is this about keeping Palin Honest. CNN? She is Honest. Bust Barack Obama after losing this Election: 5 years from now. He will be a Muslim again... He's the Liar....
Go Team America!
Let's go in a positive direction for a change.
Obama-Biden all the way!
Obam must win!! McSame will be a disaster for the country.
nobody but fanatical supporters of sen. obama will believe, that Bill Clinton thinks anymore of Obama, than he did three months ago. and likewise what Obama thinks of Clinton. this is a clear case of do anything to get into the white house.
Good to see the two phonies as chums and want us to believe that!
Nice to see two intelligent people working together. Hopefully the 15 minutes of fame are almost over the Hockey Mom...and maybe McCain will retire with Bush.
if it weren't for Bill Clinton, America would have collapsed under the incompetence of the reagan (great for regression and ignorance), bush 1 (great for haplessness and ignorance) and dubya (all-time great for incompetence, ignorance and frustration with the Constitution) administrations
Bill Clinton was a great President!
Obama is a waste of air! He does not even deserve to be in the same room as Bill or Hillary.
From a lifelong Democrat that will be voting for McCain!!
Can any McCain/ Palin backer tell us what they stand for on the issues that concern this country because they most certainly are not.
