Bill’s 1992 Campaign Manager Backs Obama

From a hurt and confused Associated Press:

Bill Clinton campaign chief backs Obama

By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The man who served as national manager of former President Clinton’s 1992 campaign plans to endorse Sen. Barack Obama, an aide to Obama said Wednesday.

Obama’s campaign planned a 1 p.m. conference call Wednesday to announce the endorsement by David Wilhelm, who later became chairman of the Democratic National Committee, according to an aide who spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement would be made public later in the day.

Wilhelm planned to tell reporters that Obama can build a coalition of Democrats, independents and Republicans needed to win the general election.

Wilhelm is a superdelegate who was previously uncommitted in the race

In the darkest days of the Clinton administration and for some years after insiders used to speculate on when would come the tipping point.

That is, the time when they thought the Clintons were removed enough from power that it would be safe to start telling the truth about them.

Perhaps we will live to see that time come to pass after all.
