The Big Dawg
Bill Clinton stumps for Jim Webb at Webb's final campaign rally in Alexandria, Virginia.
Clinton's best line of the night was that, now that he's not eligible to run for any more public offices, his job is to be Hilary's caseworker in New York.
Clinton got a warm reception from the crowd. He talked about the injustice of the Republican tax cuts and the programs that the Republicans have to cut because of the massive deficit they have created without oversight. Clinton also stressed the importance of getting our troops out of Iraq so that "we don't lose Afghanistan." He described Afghanistan's current government a democracy holding the Taliban at bay, which struck me as preposterous, but the crowd seemed to accept that assertion.
I hope Clinton gives Webb the push he needs to beat Allen tomorrow. I think he was exactly the right guy to rev up the base for tomorrow's GOTV.
