Where’s Bill Clinton?
After the former president criticized Barack Obama’s “awful legacy” during a campaign appearance on Monday, he hasn’t campaigned publicly for Hillary since.
He was scheduled to be in Cheyenne, Wyoming yesterday, but the event was canceled and an impending snow storm was blamed.
There have been no local media reports of appearances on Hillary’s behalf, and his Twitter account has been largely silent, with the exception of an obligatory tweet about the Brussels terrorist attack.
Has he finally become too much of a liability to his wife’s campaign?
On Monday, Clinton seemed to tear down President Obama to boost Hillary — a sharp contrast to her repeated attempts to wrap herself in Obama’s legacy.
“Literally from the time I met her till we talked yesterday, she is the best change maker I have ever known.
“She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framer intended for it to work,” Clinton said.
“Now, if you don’t believe that we can all grow together again, if you don’t believe that we’re ever going to grow again, if you believe it’s more important to relitigate the past, there may be many reasons that you don’t want to support her.
“But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the 7 years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her,” Clinton said.
Chelsea Clinton is making several stops in Wisconsin today for her mother, including appearances in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Madison.
So far, Bill hasn’t reemerged.
