  • Clinton back on the campaign trail for Kerry

       October 25, 2004

    The AP reports that Clinton has recovered from his heart operation and is (back?) on the campaign trail for John F'in Kerry. I understand that Bill Clinton is wildly popular in some circles, though I can't help but wonder if Clinton's campaign appearances hurt Kerry's chances more than they help them. After all, Clinton didn't exactly help Al Gore in his failed bid to win the presidency. To be fair, Gore did try to "distance" himself from Clinton in 2000, and it's hard to say now what effect that had.

    I do find it interesting that Clinton is scheduled to appear in Miami, FL later this week - - after all, Clinton isn't exactly wildly popular is southern Florida after that whole Elian Gonzales fiasco.

    I'm guessing that Bill Clinton is being called in to motivate the 18-25 year old ambivolent single women to get out to the polls - despite his many scandals, I think that young voters, new to the harsh realities of the world, might associate him with their relatively carefree adolescent years.

    After his impeachment and scandal laden last few years, I would just think that the downside risk of letting him speak outweighs the potential upside, especially in Miami, FL. Then again, I'm not a crack Democratic strategist, so what do I know.

    Interesting. I think you're absolutely right about some young voters associating Clinton with their carefree salad days.

    I'm surprised Clinton is campaigning at all. He can't *really* want Kerry to win, can he? Would he rather try his hand in the UN than wait for Hillary in 2008?

    Hopefully, the answer is that, at this point, tops Dems are sure the Kerry campaign is a lost cause and so Clinton has nothing to lose and goodwill and publicity to gain.
