(CNN) – In yet another sign that Democrats are putting the contentious and hard-fought primary season behind them, former President Bill Clinton will campaign with Sen. Barack Obama for the first time in Florida on Wednesday, according to Matt McKenna of the Clinton Foundation.
Sen. Hillary Clinton will not attend the event but did recently campaign with Obama in Florida, a crucial battleground state that CNN currently considers a toss-up.
The Clintons also recently campaigned together with Sen. Joe Biden and Biden’s wife, Jill, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where both Joe Biden and Sen. Clinton have roots.
Obama met personally with former President Clinton in September at Clinton’s Harlem offices. Then, Clinton predicted that Obama would win in November “pretty handily.”
We are fired up and ready to go. Florida here we come. Let's get those gators on our side. Fired up and ready to go. This is so great especially when Palin is going against McCain now. We are looking good Dems. Let's keep the Republicans at arms length and make FL, VA, NV, OH and SC blue. Go Dems.
Alright! Lets get this thing down! This needs to be a for sure win for OBAMA!
keep it going
no matter how CNN and the GOP and the RNC spins it, people want change, and lets not allow CNN the GOP and the RNC along with limbaugh, rove cheney and mcbush palin
steal the election they did it twice before, they will not stop at anything,
please get out and VOTE
help others with letting them know where to go
give numbers for people to call when the conservatives pull some of their stunts..
we all have to be watchful this election
this is our future
it literally HANGS in this election and our vote
this is it folks
Good get everyone out to support Obama. We need a landslide. Everyone has to remember to get out and VOTE. Even with polls on our side they do not count if you don't vote!
I look foward to seeing Bill Clinton with Barack Obama. I thing it will be good for the Obama campaign to hear Bill Clinton and his speech. I have watched Clinton on the trail and he has come across very nicely.
It's a testament to Obama's ability to bring people together that he has Bill on his side. He truly can disagree without being disagreeable.
stupid Clinton waits til the last week??? NO THANKS...
Bill, The Bible says: "If we do not forget the past, we will not move forward", thanks for being there at the crucial time you are needed. May God guide you.
LOOK OUT mcsame.
The first black president and Barack are campaigning together.
better late than never. go dems.
GO BILL AND BARACK. TAG TEAM THOSE LOSERS.
Mr. Clinton is right!!!
I hope Obama appreciates the Clintons. yesterdaHillary was in CO yesterday and will be in New Mexico today. All his supporters who gripe about what they haven't done should take a look at the republicans and be grateful. Huckabee, and Romney have done about Zero for McCain. Hillary especially has done a tremendous job.
POST CNN and dont leave my post in limbo.
This is Great :) I wonder if Clinton would be open to being part of Obama's cabinet :) I hope he will use his SOUTHERN breeding to agressively stamp OUT the Republican candidate
I really like the Clintons and realize their need to process Hillary's unsuccessful bid for nomination. She did a great job. They are true DEMOCRATS and I believe will help to push the win of the presidency toward OBAMA.
This is good.
Two of the smartest guys in politics working together for a common cause.
Too bad they can't just turn former president Clinton loose to hit multiple states [Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Georgia] by himself on Barack's behalf but everyone knows that carries some risk that Bill go off message.
Together though, they will be fine.
This is fantastic. I had the pleasure of seeing Hillary Clinton when she was here in September. Obama is going to win Florida!!!!!!!! Go Obama/Biden 08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go guys!!! Let's wrap this thing up!!!
Barack Obama respects the expertise of others,That is the mark of a true leader, one who brings together the best expertise of others,Bill CLinton belivies Obama is the CHANGE we need in Washington...
Gee, why not wait until the last week.
Guess better late than never.
Too little, too late. Piss on Bill Clinton. He should have been campaigning for Obama as soon as Hillary "finally" admitted defeat. Instead, he chose to pout and praise morons like Sarah Palin, all in a futile attempt to make up for his impotence and incompetence.
The Clintons are smart enough to realize that a McCain government could be devastating. McCain fosters a hostile environment and someone would be likely to drop a bomb on us, while Obama would be willing to discuss differences with our enemies and sort things out without war.
If the media wants to report on internal bickering, power struggles, and staff dissent, they'll have to visit the McCain/Palin (or is that Palin/McCain) campaign. Democrats are united and focused on restoring our nation's economy and standing in the world.
