No one hypnotizes a crowd like the 42nd president. Bill Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to thunderous applause and multiple standing ovations. Discarding the prompters, in typical Clintonian fashion, the former president made a spectacular case for Barack Obama’s re-election to fervent followers at the Convention.
To the fitting anthem of “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow” blasting into the convention hall, President Clinton took to the stage. “We’re here to nominate a president, and I’ve got one in mind,” Clinton began his speech with—and no, it’s not Hillary. I want to nominate a man cool on the outside but burning for America on the inside…A man who had the good sense to marry Michelle Obama,” he joked, as the audience gave a laughing Michelle a standing ovation.
