Meanwhile, Obama pulls us out of Iraq, draws down troops, and adds a whopping $5 TRILLION to the debt in less than 4 years. Oh, and his new entitlement which will be larger than medicare and social security combined has not even been factored into the $16 trillion in debt we currently has.
Clinton is a great speaker, but his argument was based on partisan politics, not policy.
No matter how eloquent a speech someone gives, the Democrats still have to sell voters on the same bill of goods they were selling in 2008, which hasn't moved the needle on anything. Their platform is "more of the same".
After the vapid hopey changey stuff of this week, that's what voters will be deciding - who they trust more on the economy: the successful businessman or the smile.
