Bill Clinton Says Obama Is Ready To Be President

August 27, 2008 – It was another night for grand slams. Former President Bill Clinton laid to rest any speculation tonight that he would not enthusiastically support Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois for President by making a forceful call to action for voters to elect Barack Obama because “Barack Obama is ready to lead America and restore American leadership in the world.”

“I am here first to support Barack Obama,” Clinton said, opening his address in characteristic fashion by deviating from the prepared text aides distributed to reporters ahead of time.

Clinton acknowledged that his “preferred candidate” — his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York — had not won the nomination. But he said, “Like her, I want all of you to support Barack Obama in November.”

Bill Clinton did his job. He was focused and disciplined and gave the Obama campaign the kind of “back up” and reinforcement needed to defeat John McCain and the Republicans in November. In addition, Bill and Hillary can deliver victory among the key states needed to win the White House.

Job well done.
