President Bill Clinton Addresses the DNC

I’ll quote Ezra Klein on Bill Clinton’s incredible speech tonight, because Ezra says it all in his opening paragraph:

He left little unsaid. For all the talk of Bill Clinton’s anger, his resentment, his grudges, Clinton took the stage tonight and threw the full weight of his prestige behind Barack Obama. Leveraging that peculiar credibility that comes from being one of four living Americans to have held the presidency, he didn’t simply give Obama his support, but his endorsement. He said that Obama was not only ready, but right. The Obama camp could have asked for nothing more. Clinton could have delivered little more.

In his speech tonight Bill Clinton said:

I say to you: Barack Obama is ready to lead America and restore American leadership in the world. Barack Obama is ready to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Barack Obama is ready to be president of the United States.”

Watch Bill Clinton’s speech here:

Andrew Sullivan called the speech: “A Clinton Masterpiece.” The full text of Bill Clinton’s speech is available here.
