Well, it's nice to know that Bill Clinton has decided to be fair and honest. He stated on the "View" that he likes both candidates running for president. Both are good.

"I genuinely like both of them," Clinton said. "I genuinely admire both of them. I think that we make a terrible mistake believing we have to find something wrong with the people we can't vote for. I like them. I like John McCain. If it hadn't been for John McCain, I'm not sure I could have normalized relations with Vietnam."

Being the loyal democrat that he is, he fully believes Obama will win in November.

Clinton cited several reasons for a Barack Obama win: People are having trouble with bills, and a financial crisis makes an Obama victory more likely. America is growing more diverse. And registration is up for the Democrats.

I know we all feel so much better kowing that Clinton is batting for an Obama presidency, right? So who does he really believe is ready to be president?

The debates could change the outcome, Clinton added. But he called Obama a smart man and a good candidate who has grown through the process. Clinton said: "I think he's ready to be president. And I think McCain's ready to be president. You've got to decide which president you want."

When President Clinton says he's ready to work for Obama, what exactly does he plan on doing? I have to wonder if he has been listening to "candidate" McCain, who is obviously not "Senator" McCain of olden days.  McCain has changed and continues to flip the flop on a daily basis. Even Biden notes that.

Oh well, Bill complicated his wifes bid for the presidency by speaking out of line, I guess we can;t expect more now. I wonder what McAuliffe is going to say?.......

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
