Bill Clinton: "Vote for me."
Does anyone have the clip of Bill Clinton giving a speech today in which he said "Vote for me"? I heard it on the radio today but I can't find it on the Internet(s) yet. Thanks in advance if you know where the clip is.

1. I heard it too, on (unfortunately) Sean Hannity. Ack. He is a gaffe machine.

Unless Hannity doctored the clip (always possible), he said "vote for me" and then in
the next sentence made sure to say Hillary's name--I think he was aware he said it, and tried to subtly correct it.

13. Not sure. This is the first time I heard him do it.
Although the "we" thing comes up a lot, which is more understandable because even the candidates themselves say "we" instead of "I." But Bill himself saying "I" is too funny. I'd like to hear the entire context, which is why I want the clip. There's always the possibility that he was speaking for Hillary, saying, "She says 'vote for me' because..." Something like that.

5. The last time I saw him
He was totally speaking in the first-person plural. We are going to do this, we are going to do that.

6. Give me a break. That gaffe is totally unexceptional when you
consider how many times that man has campaigned. Can ya'll pick something serious to talk about?

7. Yeah, I'll give him that
until it happens again. However, Bill Clinton chooses his words very carefully.

12. If it bothers you so much, you could always move on to another thread.
I'm always amazed at people who don't like the topic of a thread but take the time to post about it anyway. Usually they'll stick around reading that thread they hate so much just to see if they get any responses and then they'll post more responses in the thread they say is a waste of time.

Let's see which way this comes out. :hi:

14. Second time he said it, I believe--the first was in Tennessee the night
of the SC primary. Some DUers here noticed it.

9. Bill also said in 2000 "I probably would have run again" if the Constitution allowed it.
http://archives.cnn.com/2000/ALLPOLITICS/stories/12/07/... /

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bill Clinton says he would have been tempted to run for president again if the Constitution would have let him. And, he says, he would have won.

"Oh, I probably would have run again," Clinton tells Rolling Stone in an interview.

Does he think he'd have been a three-time winner?

"Yes. I do. But it's hard to say, because it's entirely academic," Clinton said.

He adds that as life expectancy rises, there may be a reason to change the 22nd Amendment, which limits presidents to two four-year terms. Maybe it should just limit presidents to two "consecutive" terms, Clinton suggests.

16. Former Pres. Clinton is one of the main reasons I am against a Clinton Presidency
The man loves the spotlight and power a bit too much for me to feel comfortable with him anywhere near the White House. I want some new blood in the White House.

26. Please learn to read more carefully
I said this is a reason I am against the Presidential bid by Sen. Clinton. I did not state why I am for Sen. Obama.

I will not get into comparing twelve years in elected office against being First Lady here, thanks.
