For all the crap I’ve been giving Bill Clinton lately, I gotta admit his speech last night was aces. Everything missing from Hillary‘s endorsement was writ large in Bill’s inspired address. I’m sure that fabulous ego of his played its part — "you want a speech, I’ll give you a speech" — but I was nevertheless glad to hear him throw his support behind Obama with vigor and wit.
I bet he wanted to make us miss him a little bit, too. To borrow a phrase from a famous monkey, mission accomplished.
