In this case, that means putting the ex-President at the center of your campaign by announcing the role heíd play in your administration.

    Former President Bill Clinton engaged in a heated exchange on Thursday with protesters upset about welfare reform and gun violence laws passed when he was in office 20 years ago. Addressing supporters at a Hillary Clinton presidential rally in Philadelphia, Bill Clinton was interrupted by people in the crowd holding signs reading "Clinton crime bill destroyed our communities" and "Welfare reform increased poverty." As first lady, Hillary Clinton said in a 1996 speech about the crime bill, "They are often the kinds of kids that are called super-predators." Some blacks have found the term "super-predators" offensive and have tried to...

    Fear and loathing in the American body politic is not confined to the anti-tax Tea Party. Across the spectrum of the Democratic party, every hue is feeling it too. With a fortnight to go to the midterms, moderate "Blue Dog" Democrats are in big trouble. The party's left-wing "Yellow Dogs" are up in arms about being taken for granted by the White House "hippy bashers". Even black bloggers are warning President Barack Obama they won't be "pimped" for him. Gone was the red-faced, finger-wagging Bill... More at

    Former President Bill Clinton, who endorsed then-gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom during the Democratic primary season, will be in California to campaign for Jerry Brown -- and Newsom -- on Oct. 15 and 17, the CA Democratic Party says. The announcement comes in the same week gubernatorial candidate Brown's off-the-cuff comments about Clinton's veracity created headlines -- and a distraction for his campaign. The State Attorney General's public apology to Clinton came on the heels of an ad by Republican candidate Meg Whitman's team which highlighted Clinton's past criticism of Brown as a tax-raiser -- comments which Clinton himself has now...

    Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown said this morning that he and former President Bill Clinton had moved on from their often nasty 1992 presidential primary battle and that "Bill Clinton and I share very similar ideas on how to build up the California economy, how to treat working people fairly." In his weekly call into San Francisco radio station KGO, Brown also estimated that 95 percent of rival Meg Whitman's recent ads were negative and said "she is so unpopular now that the only way she can win is to tear me down, not build her up. So you'll hear...

    It began with a television ad by Meg Whitman, the Republican candidate for governor, hammering Democratic rival Jerry Brown with a video clip from Brown's 1992 presidential nomination duel with Bill Clinton.In the video, Clinton hits Brown, to wit: "CNN. Not me, CNN says his assertion about his tax record was, quote, just plain wrong. He raised taxes as governor of California. Ö He doesn't tell the people the truth."It's effective because it's not Whitman whomping on Brown but Clinton, a popular political figure, and CNN, a reputable news organization. . . . But Brown, a motormouth who at age...

    Former President Bill Clinton had a very simple - and personal - reason Tuesday to forgive and endorse his longtime Democratic adversary Jerry Brown. It was in both their interests. According to interviews with Democratic insiders, when the video of gubernatorial candidate Brown's jab at Clinton's lying about Monica Lewinsky went viral, cable news shows besieged Democratic officeholders from here to Washington, D.C., fishing for comment on what looked like the best food fight of the season. One CNN memo framed the story this way: "Jerry Brown vs. Bill Clinton ... Meg Whitman reignites the decades-old battle between Bill Clinton...

ASSOCIATED PRESS Last update: September 14, 2010 - 11:41 PM Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that the Republican Party is embracing "ideology over evidence" and pushing out pragmatic voices that would make even his White House successor seem like a liberal. Clinton, speaking at a DFL Party fundraiser in Minneapolis, said there was no mistaking that Republicans have tacked hard right and questioned whether former President George W. Bush would fit in among the party's candidates this year....

    The ghosts of the 1992 presidential race are haunting the current gubernatorial campaign as Republican candidate Meg Whitman unveiled a TV ad this morning featuring a clip of Bill Clinton criticizing Democratic candidate Jerry Brown, who was running against Clinton in the 1992 primary. In the spot, Clinton lambastes Brown's record in what appears to be a debate with the former California governor, using some of the same charges Whitman has aimed at Brown this year. "CNN, not me, CNN says his assertion about his tax record was, quote, just plain wrong," Clinton says in the clip. "Jerry Brown went...
