Bill Blurts Out The Awful Truth

He really does think this election is about him. The Boston Globe's Scott Helman reports on a Bill Clinton speech in Quakertown, PA:

Clinton's comments, to a packed high school gym about an hour north of Philadelphia, were one part presidential politics and one part legacy protection. His beef was with Obama's contention that many of the problems facing the country today were simmering long before President Bush took office seven-plus years ago.

"I think there is a big reason there's an age difference in a lot of these polls," he said. "Because once you've reached a certain age, you won't sit there and listen to somebody tell you there's really no difference between what happened in the Bush years and the Clinton years; that there's not much difference in how small-town Pennsylvania fared when I was president, and in this decade."

You almost get the sense that if Obama would just show Bill the proper respect, he'd lean on his wife to get out of the race.
