Bill Clinton rides to President Barack Obama rescue


In a rare return to the White House, Bill Clinton urged unhappy Democrats to unite behind President Barack Obama’s embattled plan to avert a massive New Year’s tax hike.

Bill Clinton Talks to President Barack Obama.

“I personally believe this is a good deal, and the best he could have gotten under the circumstances,” the former president said as he and Obama paid a surprise visit to the White House briefing room after private talks.

Obama praised his guest – “he presided over as good an economy as we’ve seen in our lifetimes” – but quickly excused himself to go join his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, at a holiday party.

Clinton, plainly relishing the spotlight, also pushed the US Senate to ratify a landmark nuclear arms control treaty with Russia and steeled Democrats routed in November elections for “a ferocious fight” with Republicans.
