Joe Sestak's recent call log is any indication, Pennsylvania's newly minted Democratic Senatorial nominee is moving up in the world.

Before an appearance on CNN Wednesday, cameras in the Russell Senate Office Building caught Sestak accepting a call from former President Bill Clinton.

Earlier Wednesday, Sestak told CNN that he received a call from President Obama congratulating him on his primary victory. Obama "couldn't have been nicer," Sestak said.

Sestak also said that president told him, "I'm there for you and I look forward to working with you and getting you in the United States Senate."
