'Secretary of Explaining Stuff' sells Obamacare

Updated 9/4/13 1:25 p.m. ET
(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton, who President Barack Obama once joked should be appointed “Secretary of Explaining Stuff,” was professorial, lengthy and detailed in a Wednesday speech dedicated to clarifying the controversial – and still misunderstood – Affordable Care Act.

Although the former president used a majority of the speech to detail the strengths and weaknesses of Obamacare – he repeatedly told the audience at his presidential library in Little Rock, Arkansas the phone number and website that would help people find Obamacare coverage – he ended his speech with a plea for bipartisanship from Congress.
