Democratic Convention 2012

Bill Clinton Prepares to Argue for Obama's Reelection

Will be making an economic case, so he better be bringing that charisma


Bill Clinton, the last two-term Democratic president, will urge US voters Wednesday to let Barack Obama lead America back to prosperity, in a highly-anticipated convention speech.

The hugely popular figure who presided over a period of strong growth, low unemployment and budget surpluses will make the economic case for re-electing Obama and spurning his Republican opponent on November 6, Mitt Romney.

In a "Clear Choice" Obama campaign advert a few weeks ago, Clinton previewed the message we can expect on Wednesday night when the silky political veteran retakes the spotlight in a packed convention hall in Charlotte, North Carolina.
