Convention to test whether Bill Clinton still has magic touch

PHILADELPHIA | Selling Barack Obama was easy. Tuesday, Bill Clinton faces a more difficult challenge: selling Hillary Clinton as a future president.

Former President Clinton will headline the second night of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday facing a nation with lingering doubts about Hillary Clinton’s trustworthiness.

He speaks as those doubts about her have fueled alarmingly high polling negatives, anger among supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and a throbbing hangover from leaked Democratic National Committee emails that many Sanders backers say confirms that the system was “rigged” against their candidate.

Aggravating the challenge: The 42nd president himself may prove more of a liability than a help as Hillary Clinton’s top surrogate against the fiery, take-no-prisoners campaign style of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“The trouble this time is the rules are broken,” said Patrick Maney, a Boston College history professor who’s the author of “Bill Clinton: New Gilded Age President,” “I just think Trump has just changed the rules.”

    The Clinton’s are con artists. Both of them are corrupted to the bones.
    Their brainwashed followers are so dumb. They are voting for the most corrupted woman in earth.
    Bill Clinton will have more BJ with different Monica Levinsky at the White House and the circus will go and go to brainwashed more dumb Americans.

    Bill has managed to remain relevant in the Democrat Party. This year is likely not to be any different. He and President Obama can make great speeches when they put a little effort into it. Selling Hillary may be his hardest task so far. Hillary’s corruption and incompetence is so great that I’m not sure even Bill Clinton can pull this con job off.

      Don’t forget Bill Clinton is no better than Hillary, they are equally bad.

    What magic touch? Like that one of Monica Luwenski, Jennifer Flower, and many others? Hillary Clinton is an enabler. You know what? Some stupid people thinks Bill Clinton was a great president. Only reason for that was his tenure was the starting of the when people’s businesses has successfully profited. But after 8 years, that “bubble” blow up and then back again to the drawing board. Every 8 years, the bubble blows up. Now, it is ripe time for that after Obama, Hillary, and the democrats ravage this beautiful country of ours. Not only economically but national security are all dismantled.
    We are at war with savage people from the Middle East.
