Clintons make double-pronged pitch for Obama

18 hours ago
SCRANTON, Pennsylvania (AFP) Hillary and Bill Clinton Sunday launched a campaign blitz of the blue-collar heartland that will decide the White House race, beseeching their supporters to make Barack Obama president.
The couple, making their first double-barrelled campaign appearance for Obama, dominated Democratic politics for a generation, but now are supporting players, after reconciling Hillary Clinton's bitter nominating defeat.
"This election is too important to sit on the sidelines of history," said the former first lady, calling on her legions of working class and women voters to take up the banner of the man who beat her.
"It took a Democratic president to clean up after the last president Bush, it's going to take a Democratic president to clean up after this President Bush," Clinton said in a working-class corner of swing-state Pennsylvania.
"Make no mistake about it. We've done it before and we'll do it again. America will once again rise from the ashes of the Bushes."
The Clintons teamed up with Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden, a native of Scranton and a man with working-class roots, just 23 days before the presidential election.
"Barack Obama and Joe Biden are for you and that's why I am for Barack Obama and Joe Biden," the former first lady said.
Bill Clinton, still popular with grass roots Democrats, said Biden and Obama were better prepared than Republican John McCain to pull America out of the financial crisis.
He called on his wife's supporters, in a state where she won a thumping 10 percent victory over Obama in the primary season, to look into their hearts.
"You need to remember, if you supported her, why you did it," Clinton said, urging those who shared his wife's crusade for healthcare reform and advocacy of the middle class to chose Obama.
"If you ask yourselves who has the best ideas, who's got the best instinct, who's got the best ability to understand these challenges, who's got the best supporting cast, the answer is Barack Obama.
"That's why Hillary's here, that's why I'm here," Clinton said.
Biden paid tribute to both Clintons and portrayed himself and Obama as the natural inheritors of their political legacy.
"Everything she's devoted her life to has been on the side of people who have been on the other side of power," Biden said.
Most polls show Obama with a handy lead in Pennsylvania, but the McCain campaign, especially by deploying vice presidential pick Sarah Palin, is making a hard push for social conservative swing voters.
Hillary Clinton won a stunning 18 million votes in her six-month coast-to-coast nominating showdown with Obama, so she is set to play a vital role in the closing days of the election.
Republicans had hoped that simmering hostility towards Obama from her supporters, especially white blue-collar voters in swing states, could provide an opening for McCain and Palin.
The sudden depth of the financial crisis however has boosted Obama's ratings and polls show that more voters trust him to fix the economy than McCain -- a factor powering the Democrat's growing advantage in battleground states.
Clinton was due to campaign for Obama in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Monday and then head to West Virginia and Arkansas, and was expected to be on the trail in a long pre-election run.
Bill Clinton was next headed to Virginia, in the past a solid Republican state which appears in danger of falling to Obama on November 4.
The former president was said to have been fuming over his wife's defeat, but went a long way toward burying the hatchet with a warm endorsement of Obama at the Denver nominating convention in August.
Several Democrats at the rally said the economic malaise was a key factor in their vote.
"I came to see Joe Biden and President and Senator Clinton," said Scranton resident Joe Tully, 77, next to his wife, Anne, a former Hillary Clinton supporter.
"In a way I feel sorry for him (Obama), the things he is getting into when he gets in office," she told AFP.
Nurse Virginia Moench, from Lehighton, just outside Scranton, said she was supporting the Democratic ticket because of its stand on the economy.
"I feel as though Obama and Biden have been very focused on the economy. I think McCain has been improvisational.
"He used very poor judgment in picking Palin, and Obama showed wonderful judgment in picking someone like Joe Biden."
