The Obama campaign announced that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) will stump for Obama in Nevada this Friday and south Florida on Aug. 21. I'm told she will doing more on the road for Obama.

Meanwhile, some serious relationship building seems in order between presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former President Bill Clinton.

"You can argue that nobody is ready to be President," the former President told ABC's Kate Snow, a pretty tepid answer to her question about whether Obama is ready to lead.

I KNEW THIS WOULD BE SPINNED THE WRONG WAY, CLINTON WAS BEING SINCERE WHEN HE SPOKE, HE WAS
SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE!
I KNEW EVERYONE WOULD CONSTRUE THIS AS A PUTDOWN
ON OBAMA, THAT'S NOT WHAT HE MEANT, HE WAS TALKING
ABOUT LEARNING ON THE JOB, YOU SEE BUSH DIDN'T
LEARN ANYTHING, BUT FABRICATE A WAR DISEASE!
TO BILL CLINTON'S CREDIT HE DIDN'T PUT DOWN OBAMA,
THE CLINTON'S HAVEN'T GOTTEN OVER LOSING, THAT'S
AN HONEST WAY TO FEEL ABOUT SOMETHING, MCCAIN
WILL KNOW THOSE FEELINGS ON NOVEMBER 4TH, HE
CAN'T WIN EITHER!

Pres Bill Clinton is a great speaker and was loved by many voters,and I believe he can be of very good service to the US,by speaking for change,political freedom, spiritual freedom,and He can help us out by being supportive of justice for all peoples,in the world. He was successful in bringing the US into a closer relationship,with the middle eastern powers.He is a leader and has great wisdom in the political arena. HIs words ring out for justice and understanding and world peace. He will go down in history as one of our great leaders as President of the United States Of America.
