Debates and Bill Clinton

Having been actively involved in progressive politics for 30 years, I always watch these campaigns and ask "where is our Bill Clinton". Now, Obama was my favorite and the comparisons are similar but..... I've never seen a better campaigner. Ever. Bill was an educated redneck. He could wow a room at Harvard and a bonfire full of hillbillies in Chattanooga. He, like Obama brought together a coalition of liberals, moderates and conservative Democrats. He bridged the divide ( similar to Obama). He was cool, had real life problems and demons and the young people related. Better yet- he didn't bend. He fought, he threw punches, James Carvell style. I'll never forget seeing him in late Sept, an outsider who jumped in late and was discounted due to affair allegations and low name recognition. I told my buddy then- this guy is our next President. We don't have a Clinton or Obama this time. There has to be one out there. Yes, times have changed but they are there and when they appear- you just know it. Sorry, just reminiscing

1. I believe Pete is a new Clinton. Obama, etc - if he gets the chance.

3. with all due respect

 

He's not even close as a campaigner or his broad appeal. I love him but he's not in the same league

4. I like Mayor Pete... but he's not even close! Of all the candidates, Elizabeth is the closest IMHO.

 


Bernie/Elizabeth or Elizabeth/Bernie 2020!!
Either way, they're stronger together!!
Welcome to the revolution!!!
