1. Nobody, but nobody, does that better

than William J. Clinton. Thanks, Big Dawg. You outdid yourself in helping the POTUS win a well-deserved re-election.

13. true that!

Watched a speech he gave just before the election, daughter comes through the room and starts yammering, I bark, "STOP TALKING! Big Dawg is on the tv!" She says, "So? What's he doing?" I say, "EXPLAINING STUFF." She sits beside me, gets drawn in for the next half hour (ah, the Clinton charisma ), then says, "Wow. He really IS explaining stuff! If we didn't have Obama, he'd be an awesome president!"

(She's 12.)

2. If only!

His speech at the Democratic National Convention (despite repugs like Krauthammer saying it was too long and too "wonky") was flat-out amazing. It could've been twice and long and I still would've watched it--it put me in mind of an Albert Einstein quote: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Judging by how Fmr Pres. Clinton chose his words (and a lot of it was even ad-libbed!) he understands things really well.

10. My bumper sticker says ...

"I Miss Being Irrationally Exuberant"



Slack-jawed, knuckle-draggers don't get it. (Too many syllables.)

7. Ah, Bill

You really did a great job "explaining" arithmetic to the american public, thank you! He may not have been a perfect president, but I really loved that man and still do. He's just the very best there is at communicating high level information in a downhome way everyone can understand and buy into. So happy he's on our side!!

14. And as Jon Stewart said,

Republicans are the party that makes up numbers to make themselves feel better.

Clinton was integral to BO's re-election. Love to hear him speak.

17. Unfortunately, that's supposed to be the president's job.

That was one of Clinton's biggest strengths as president.

He speaks to us, not at us.
