Bill Clinton to stump for Brown

 Bill Clinton will now campaign with Brown.

Bill Clinton will now campaign with Brown.

(CNN) - It appears Bill Clinton is letting bygones be bygones.

As our friends at first reported, the former president will appear with California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown in mid October. Brown's campaign has also announced the upcoming visit.

This comes a week after Brown misfired with a joke about Clinton's involvement with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will also be on the stump with Clinton and Brown.

    What is this? The resurrection of the Three Stooges??!! Does California actually believe that these 3 far left wingers have real solutions to California's fiscal disaster, which THEY caused?!

    WAKE UP CALIFORNIA! Want fiscal sanity restored, VOTE REPUBLICAN!

    Clinton is a true American. He will rise up above the pettiness and help out his fellow Dem. Very mature and a sign on a TRUE leader.

    I am very proud of him and President Obama!

    Hm... is this the same Bill Clinton who was only the second President of the US to be impeached? Lied to Congress. Lied to the American people. Had a sexual relationship with White House intern. Had sex with this intern in the Oval office. Had is law license suspended. Was cited for contempt of court. Suspended from the US Supreme Court. Did an out-of-court settlement with Paula Jones for her sexual harassment lawsuit. And there's much, more. Most people would never show their face in public after doing all this. But not arrogant, egotisical Bill Clinton. He prances around the world like nothing happened. And the liberal, left wing, biased media continues to turn a blind eye.

    You're wasting your time Bill. Brown is toast and doesn't respect you anyway.

    Just what we need two dinosaurs. Its time to get away from career politicians. See how good they have been in the past. The road to recovery is paved with new comers.

    Are we getting desperate. Look at the face of the man Clinton is trying to keep in office, pure disdain.

    Why doesn't someone come to Iowa and stump for our Governor Chet Culver who is pretty much being written off to an old "has been" Republican. Why doesn't someone come to Iowa to stump for the opponents running against Charles Grassley and Steve King. You wouldn't even know on a national level, that those two are even on the ballot in November. I guess Iowa only counts when the wack job from Alaska shows up or it is time for the caucus.

    The whole "misfired" thing was invented by this column in the first place.. you really think Bill C has such a thin skin?

    Good, Meg and Company tried to cause division and it backfired! California loves Bill, thanks Meg for reuniting the 2 after all this time to make up!

    You neglect to mention that Meg Whitman has been constantly running an ad showing Clinton attacking Brown's tax record. I'll bet that more than anything is why he's decided to help out.

    Is there any doubt that Bill Clinton needs to go away? He is part of the Washington establishment problem and shares responsibility for the mess we are in.
