Former President Bill Clinton packed them in to the Patrick Henry High School auditorium Saturday evening.
A colleague who went to the Mitt Romney event Thursday told me there was no comparison, that Clinton brought out at least three times the crowd Mitt did.
And Clinton isn’t even a candidate!
He spoke for a little under an hour, to wild cheers, whoops and sustained applause. And like his Democratic National Convention speech, it was a great one. With humor, pathos and ultimate seriousness about Tuesday’s election, Clinton deftly and factually outlined the differences between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Few if any one who heard the ex-president could have possibly come away with the notion that a vote for the former was wise.
It seems pretty certain by now that Obama’s going to win the election. The question is, by how much? And will he take Virginia?
