Come Back Bill Clinton, We Love You!

Where is Bill?
Bill won New Hampshire for Hillary. He won Nevada for Hillary. South Carolina was Obama's base. However, Hillary's new base is with the women, Latinos and other minorities. These voters love Hillary and Bill. Bill needs to come back out and show his magic.
New Hampshire and Nevada showed there is an incredible love out there for Bill Clinton in the the Democratic party. Despite the incredible bias pro-Obama media reporting, Hillary still won these states. The talk about Nevada was all about Bill Clinton. And this is a good thing.
Hillary's base does not care about the race issues, the anti-Clinton rhetoric. They care about what the Clinton's have done for them in the past. And what the Clinton's will do for them in the future. To this extent, Bill is absolutely invaluable to play to these groups. Bill should focus on the Latinos, women and other parts of the core Democratic base that love Bill Clinton right now. Nowhere is this more true than in California.
Just a note, I was talking with an Indian American women. She was for Hillary. But her husband was for Obama. Her husband loved Bill Clinton, but thought that Hillary would not listed to him in the White House. She had argued that Bill would be involved in the government, a two for the price of one argument. In other words, one of Hillary's greatest strength with the diverse base of the Democratic party is their love of Bill Clinton.
So Bill needs to get out there and remind us all that he is still here. And will be helping Hillary throughout the campaign and her presidency. He has to do is remind people what good economic times we had in the 1990's.
