Former Democratic president Bill Clinton made a comment during a Washington campaign rally Monday which seemed to unintentionally (or intentionally) disparage the presidency of Barack Obama, denouncing the “awful legacy of the last eight years.”
Clinton was campaigning for his wife Hillary Clinton, saying she was exactly the “change-maker” the country needed. “She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framers intended for it to work.”
“Now, if you don’t believe that we can all grow together again, if you don’t believe that we’re ever going to grow again, if you believe it’s more important to relitigate the past, there may be many reasons that you don’t want to support her,” he said.
“But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her,” Clinton concluded.
