Commercials, of course, but is there more? In these last days, it’s too late to quibble over whether to define Mitt Romney as “a severe conservative” or “a soulless climber who would say anything to get the job.” Either would serve.
What the former President could still do better than anyone else suits both his talent and temperament—-tie together the overarching issue of both the Presidential campaign and the battle against a Tea Party Congress.
However it’s done—-speeches, interviews, ads—-the final Clinton message would come from the heart.
It would link Romney to Capitol Hill snakes like Darrell Issa who have tried to damage Obama with attacks over U.S. deaths in Libya and, in the process, sideswiped Hillary Clinton.
That opportunity is underscored by the Clintons’ trip to Haiti together this week. With her husband’s arm around her, the Secretary of State reminisced: “As Bill told you, we came here for the first time together just after we were married and fell in love with Haiti, and have just celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary, which is exhausting to think about."
In the final push before the balloting, Bill Clinton could do much for the President, their party and America’s most fascinating marriage, wherever it takes them in the future.
