As Election Day Approaches, Obama Depends on Bill Clinton

It's like he never left


The presidential race appears to be moving in President Barack Obama's favor, but he's still relying on the Bill Clinton crutch.

Clinton heads to New Hampshire next Wednesday to provide the overture for Obama in the hours before the first debate, and more stops are in the works.

The message couldn't be clearer: There may be a way for Chicago to pull off a win without Clinton's continued help, but they're not going to risk it.
