Anticipating Former President Bill Clinton

Excerpts from former President Bill Clinton's Convention speech this evening.

Delegates and guests at the Democratic Convention in Charlotte are looking forward to hearing former President Bill Clinton this evening at 10:30 p.m.

Here are some excerpts from the speech he will deliver this evening:

"In Tampa the Republican argument against the President's re-election was pretty simple:  We left him a total mess, he hasn't finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in.

"I like the argument for President Obama's re-election a lot better.  He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.

"The most important question is, what kind of country do you want to live in?  If you want a you're-on-your-own, winner-take-all society, you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared prosperity and shared responsibility -- a we're-all-in-this-together society -- you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden."
