The Campaign Spot

Bill Clinton Asks For Your Support

Recently arriving in my e-mailbox…

 

Dear Jim,

Am I enthusiastic about my wife’s campaign for president? You bet I am.

At least that’s what I’m telling her. I kind of like being the only modern two-term Democratic president — tons of fun when I run into Al and John — but I’ve got to act like I have no problem sharing the spotlight.

 

I know her better than anybody on earth, and she’s got the best combination of mind and heart of everybody I’ve ever known.

 

Must…  resist…. cheap, easy joke about other body parts…

 

All across the country, Hillary is campaigning with the signature wisdom, grace, and humor that make her a great candidate. I know that if we all work hard enough, those same traits will make her an even better president.

Let me clarify: An even better president than she is as a candidate, not a better president than me.
You and I know something about waging and winning presidential campaigns.
Well, mostly me.
Winning the White House takes persistence, energy and effort — not just from the candidate, but from a massive network of grassroots supporters.
And an independent bid from H. Ross Perot.
Hillary’s campaign is off to a great start.
“Iraq Position 3.0″ was unveiled last week to thundering tolerance by the anti-war grassroots! 
And this week, we’re going to help take it to another level. Our goal: to demonstrate the range and breadth of Hillary’s support by raising one million dollars in grassroots donations in a week’s time.  Will you help me get our “One Week, One Million” campaign off to a powerful start?  Click to donate:http://www.hillaryclinton.com/oneweek  

Look, with Republicans using everything in their arsenal to stop her campaign, Hillary is going to need every one of us to do everything that we can for her.

 

Really? Republicans are using “everything in their arsenal” already?

 

During eight years in the White House, Hillary and I faced a constant barrage of attacks from Washington Republicans.

 

You know what I mean, ”a constant barrage of attacks.” A less violent version of the ones from al-Qaeda that I pretty much ignored for eight years.

 

No insult was off-limits. No tactic was too low. They threw everything they could at us — but we beat them time and time again.

 

We beat ‘em together. Just you, me, her and a big pile of Chinese money.

 

The attacks on Hillary haven’t stopped, and she hasn’t stopped winning.

 

You saw how well she did in her 2006 Senate race against her Republican opponent whatshisname.

 

You know how they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? Well, Hillary is as strong as they come.

 

Vote for my wife. She is immortal.

 

Let’s make this a week when we demonstrate that her campaign is strong, too. Strong enough to sustain Hillary’s run for the presidency through thick and thin.

 

Obama scares us.

 

Strong enough to win.

 

“Strong” went over very well with the focus groups this week.

Believe me.

 

and a brilliant born leader, and I have no doubt the American people will make her our first woman president.  Over the next week, you’ll hear from some other friends and admirers of Hillary. I hope you’ll join them in making our One Week, One Million campaign a success. But, most importantly, I hope you’ll act right now to get this dramatic display of grassroots support off the ground with a big outpouring for Hillary on the first day.  Click to donate:http://www.hillaryclinton.com/oneweek  Thank you so much for your support. Hillary and I couldn’t do it without you.
Sincerely,  

Bill Clinton

 

Eh… think I’ll pass.
