......we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us.... this from Bill Clinton..

.........."But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we've finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her. Because she's the only person who basically has good ideas, will tell you how she's going to pay for them, can be commander-in-chief, and is a proven change maker with Republicans and Democrats and Independents alike."

I realize she needs to distance herself from Barak on some issues but wow, "the awful legacy of the last eight years"?? Really??

Is the weekly standard a banned magazine for DU??

10. He was talking about repug obstructionism.

But from some of the posts I've read on DU, many Sanders supporters have implied that towards Obama himself, not the repug obstructionists.

Hell, Sanders wanted to primary him.

4. I wish the full video would get posted somewhere. I'd love to get the full context.

 

And I'd love even ore not to give the Standard any click revenue.

8. Sounds like he was rehashing lines from his 2008 stump speeches! He's definitely mailing it in.

13. I think that has happened more than once

There are many comments 'round the internet about how much he seems to be failing with age.

15. I guess that's what happens when people have nothing left.

It's actually kind of sad.
