Boccieri had to rush off stage when his wife went into labor – and Clinton, at the mic, took credit for inducing her labor. I mean, of course.
“His wife’s having a baby,” Strickland said to Clinton as he was speaking. “He has to leave.”
“The baby’s now being born, tell him goodbye!” Clinton told the crowd. Then, he revealed a secret power: “You’d be amazed how many times I take a picture with a very pregnant woman and she immediately gives birth like that.”
It’s not exactly like he’s saying he induces pregnancy, but still a classic Clintonism. Then he took it further, telling the grandparents in attendance, “I would like some credit for your fifth grandchild being born into the world. We got another Democrat, I wish we could register that baby before it’s too late.”
Tonight, Pres. Clinton is in Florida, campaigning with Kendrick Meek – the candidate he was rumored to have asked to drop out. We’ll see if any babies drop out at the event.
