    Clinton is a visible surrogate because Obama is not poplular. Clinton needs to get out the Democrat vote, because lots of people that voted for Obama don't want to vote for him again. Obama is in real trouble. None of his policies has worked, so the Dems have to go back to Clinton, who was very successful because he worked with the Republicans rather than ram through an ultra progressive policy that utterly failed.

    Of course. Clinton's a 90's girl liker and Obama's a 00's working stiff.
