Yes, the first Co-President as some are saying on the comment boards. In a story posted by Yahoo Finance (originally from AP Associated Press) it is reported that Mr. Clinton may have saved (at least he tried) President Obama’s bacon This is after he met with, and then decided after the meeting, to appear before the press
corpse corps in defense of the President’s and Republicans’ new tax deal. The President, apparently showing extreme confidence in President Clinton, walked away to attend a party and left it with him:
Bill Clinton implored Democrats to back the tax-cut deal that President Barack Obama negotiated with Republicans as the former president made a surprise appearance at Obama’s side in the White House briefing room Friday.
“I don’t believe there is a better deal out there,” Clinton told reporters who’d been summoned at a moment’s notice to see the former chief executive back the current one. Clinton and Obama had just finished a private meeting in the Oval Office.
Obama said it was a “terrific meeting” and then turned the podium over to Clinton.
There is a bit more to the story accessible here. We only wish to add that Bill Clinton lived through 8 years of gory and glory filled nights and days and he demonstrated his power of persuasion on many occasions — some Presidential and some not so. If he can quell the screeching of the Democrats and Progressives long enough to bring things back to a path toward normal, he will do well.
There is this short clip showing the Billster at work. I’m sure there will be more of the same appearing on television and other moving venues.
Thanks and a flap of the cap to AP, Yahoo and Real Politics.
