    Bill Clinton has to be the smartest guy in the room even when he’s not in the room.

    Clinton is not on Barack Obama’s campaign staff, is not a trusted adviser, does not set Obama’s strategy.


    But Bill Clinton is pretty good at sabotaging Obama’s strategy.

    He did so last week when he went on television and said Mitt Romney had a “sterling” record while running Bain Capital.

    The Obama message is exactly the opposite. The Obama campaign had just run a TV ad claiming that working Americans had been harmed by Bain Capital and included one man saying Bain had been a “vampire” that “sucked the blood out of us.”



    Whether you liked or hated the ad (I liked it), it attacked Romney on his strongest point: He is a good businessman who knows how to create jobs and, therefore, will be a good president.

    But Bill Clinton did not like that ad.

    “I think he had a good business career,” Clinton said of Romney and added that “a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.”

    Obama does not need Clinton undercutting him. The two are not close, but they are not supposed to be enemies. They have golfed together, they attend fundraisers together, their staffs talk and, oh, yeah, Clinton’s wife is Obama’s secretary of state.


    There are two things going on here. First, Clinton has always been cozier with Wall Street than Obama. In January 1999, I was at a very odd event for then-President Clinton on the 106th floor of the World Trade Center.


    the rest here..

    ...unless you've already been the POTUS! He's got no election to lose now. Why shouldn't he say exactly what's on his mind?

    If Obama's smart, he'll listen to Clinton instead of Simon. I know Bill doesn't give a shit what Simon says.

    How very unusual: you fail to understand what's going on.

    Clinton wants Obama to lose.

    1. Personal insult: they painted Clinton as a racist in '08.

    a. Bill Clinton told Ted Kennedy that Obama 'would be getting us coffee' a few years ago
    Bill Clinton told Ted Kennedy that Obama 'would be getting us coffee' a few years ago: 'Game Change' - New York Daily News

    2. If he loses, Hillary has a shot in '16. Rumor has it that Bill had
    a poll done, secretly , and advised her to challenge Obama now.
    She declined.

    3. And this rumor: Bill actually agrees that Obama is a detriment to the nation, and
    has told close friends 'you have six months to save the country.'

    Did you read the Politico article...he practically endorsed Romney.

    It's personal. He doesnt like the fact that Obama kept Hillary and Him out of the White House.
