In Spite of Her

Aside from, perhaps, the Clintons themselves, I don’t know anyone who thinks that either Hillary or Bill have even remotely gone out of their way to campaign for Barack Obama. Sure, they’ve done some perfunctory stuff here and there, but they certainly haven’t bent over backwards to get the Democratic nominee elected. They’re the O.J.
