Obama and Bill Clinton campaign together

Former President Bill Clinton made his first appearance in the 2012 campaign election sharing the stage with current President Barack Obama. The President who held office for two terms himself campaigned for fellow Democrat Obama, who is running for re-election. Bill Clinton helped raise 2 million dollars in a night for the campaign.

The white haired Clinton was his usual self and sported a smile while addressing a gathering of over 500 Obama supporters outside the Virginia home of his friend and Democratic adviser Terry McAuliffe.

Clinton commended Obama for his efforts; he was more than gracious to the man who beat his wife to the Democratic President nomination in the 2008 election. Clinton’s support could be extremely crucial for Obama considering the fact that his economic policies have been branded populist rather than being shrewd policy making. The ever growing fiscal deficit has also done no favors to the current president.
