Pres. Clinton Campaigns at UC Davis
Senator Hillary Clinton’s most famous supporter was in town last night. Former President Bill Clinton watched the Democratic presidential candidates debate in Sacramento, then spoke at a campaign rally at U-C Davis.

The former president spoke to an estimated 7,800 people for 45 minutes, delving deep into policy after policy. His goal was to drive home a simple message: That he knows what it takes to run the country, and Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person for the job.
Clinton: “In order to be president and succeed, you have to be able to turn your good intentions into positive changes in other people’s lives.”
Unlike some of his other campaign speeches, nothing Bill Clinton said last night upstaged the actual candidate. But he did talk about himself quite a lot. According to my entirely unscientific count, the former president said words like “I,” “me” and “my” well over twice as much as he referred to his wife.
