Clinton In Philly

Bill Clinton appeared with John Kerry in Philadelphia yesterday. Check out the crowd:

The Washington Post gives us the low down:

Four years after being effectively banished from campaigning by the 2000 Democratic nominee, Al Gore, Clinton beamed with obvious delight at being
put to work this time. He and Kerry stood side by side amid roars from partisans.

"If this isn't good for my heart, I don't know what is," Clinton said. "From time to time, I have been called the Comeback Kid. In eight days, John Kerry's going to make America the Comeback Country."

Clinton then flew to Florida and will be campaigning for Kerry in Nevada and New Mexico this week, with a stop in Arkansas planned prior to his return to New York. People question why he'd appear in a Democratic stronghold like Philadelphia first; Republicans are even claiming it's a victory for Bush that Clinton's valuable time was wasted in a state that more than likely will go Kerry anyway. I think it was wise to start him out close to home, make sure he was OK post surgery to continue. Looks like he's good to go and he'll be a huge asset to Kerry. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Bill Clinton, our October surprise.
