Has a modern day ex-president ever become so involved in his party’s candidate selection process? (Truman? in ’56 or ’60?)
Bill Clinton, speaking at a Vegas YMCA last night, made more charges against Obama and claimed to have, with Chelsea, personally witnessed voter suppression by the Culinary Workers….”Is this the new politics? I haven’t seen anything like that in America in 35 years. So I will say it again – they think they’re better than you.”
“The fact that they lost a lawsuit aimed at suppressing workers’ votes, and that now they’re trying to hold on to these baseless claims is ridiculous,” she [Culinary Workers political director Pilar Weiss] said. Weiss also said Clinton’s claim is “technically impossible.”….”We have found it shocking that President Clinton has gotten so engaged in promoting these accusations,” she said.
