Bill Clinton bringing star power to N.H. for Obama
Ex-president aiming to sway undecided voters
When Bill Clinton speaks Wednesday at the University of New Hampshire, President Obama’s surrogate-in-chief is likely to receive the kind of raucous welcome that often is lavished on the incumbent. More than Vice President Joe Biden, Clinton is regarded by Democrats as the stand-in star -- the folksy, high-intellect charmer who can connect with people who do not warm to Obama. For a man who tried to derail Obama during his bitter primary campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2008, the former president’s transformation to top cheerleader has been an evolving partnership where each side can reap enormous benefits.
