And not by a tiny margin either.
The timing of bringing Bill Clinton out is going to be a killer for the McCain camp. Bill Clinton is another who doesn’t take prisoners when he is campaigning – he proved that when he helped Hillary. Formidable is not the word for it.
I have always liked Bill Clinton – the way her turned the US around when he was in office shows that it isn’t the Republicans who run a tight fiscal ship – it is the Democrats.
The Republicans run on some out-dated philosophy on economics, the Democrats don’t – and neither will Barack Obama. You can see that Obama will utilise Bill Clinton – and I do think he will have him as an advisor when he takes office. We will see many bring out the old arguments that Bill had with Barack – that is par for the course.
But – Bill Clinton will be campaigning for Barack Obama, much as Hillary Clinton is doing now.
“I predict that Sen. Obama will win and win handily,” Clinton said when asked his opinion on the state of the race.
Obama smiled at Clinton’s prediction, saying, “There you go, you can take it from the president of the United States. He knows a little something about politics.”
And that he does. There is still something about Bill Clinton that many in the US love – when he brings that to the table we will see quite a few changes in the poll numbers that so many are looking at with 50+ days to go.
How big will that win be? I still say it will be a land-slide once the American people start seeing through the lies that McCain is spouting.
The McCain camp should be scared at these big-hitters. They mean for Obama to be president and they will do what is needed to ensure it.
