Bill Clinton is on Board for Obama

Bill Clinton issued a short, to the point endorsement for Obama via his spokesman Matt McKenna today:

President Clinton is obviously committed to doing whatever he can and is asked to do to ensure Senator Obama is the next president of the United States,” McKenna said.

The Swamp notes that the Obama camp was not “specific when asked” what Clinton what they might ask Clinton to do.  

A unified Democratic Party is going to be a powerful force for change this year and we’re confident President Clinton will play a big role in that,” said Obama spokesman Bill Burton.

Bill Clinton “is in Europe this week to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday, give speeches and work for the William J. Clinton Foundation,” so he won’t be attending the “unity rally between the two former rivals Friday in New Hampshire.”  

Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke Sunday and talked about Obama connecting with the former president sometime in the future, Burton said.

Friday’s “unity” rally with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be held in a tiny town in New Hampshire, aptly named Unity, New Hampshire, and the “event is being billed as a “Unite for Change” rally.”

    If Bill is going to be with Mandela anyway, Obama should seize the opportunity by publicly stating that Clinton is going to take a message for the next President. With that much focus and the backing of Obama, Bill should be able to put together a joint declaration calling for Mugabe to step down, and for South Africa to publicly throw in its support. You get Mandela (and how about Desmond Tutu), Clinton and Obama all putting Mbeki on the spot and we’d see if the guy could stand that much heat.
