Bill Clinton defends Sarah Palin: President Bill Clinton said Democrats shouldn't criticize Sarah Palin over her relatively thin resume, instead called her a "good choice" for Presidential hopeful John McCain. "Why say, ever, anything bad about a person? Why don't we like them and celebrate them and be happy for her elevation to the ticket? And just say that she was a good choice for him and we disagree with them?" said Clinton, who also said, "I come from Arkansas, I get why she's hot out there."

Congratulations to Bill Clinton for taking the high road. It is a shame that so many other Democrats prefer instead to spew hateful and viscious comments about this woman. Maybe Bill is tired of hearing the same vitriol directed at Governor Palin that was directed at Hillary by Democrats during the primary. Democrats attacked her far, far worse than Republicans ever did.That should not be surprising as Democrats have shown themselves to be much more mean spirited than Republicans. Kudos to Bill for standing up to their hate.

The misogyny of the Democrats didn’t stop with their own candidate, what’s to make you think it would stop at the opposition? These are the people in charge of Congress, giving rich white men billions in bail-outs.

Its funny because people like me just question her abilities and it is seen as hateful and vicious? Everyone should be questioning every candidates abilities for this very important job! Its so obvious now that the Republicans are keeping her under the cloak of secrecy. Makes this independent think there is a lot to hide. As for Bill Clinton? Sour grapes…too bad.

I really resent the whole Democrats are mean spirited!! That just sounded like a mean spirited comment!

The point that Bill Clinton was trying to make was that he too, was a young governer before his Presidency. Everyone critized him for his lack of experience, and he ended up doing A LOT for this country! He was trying to give her (as well as Obama) some slack.

“They’re both good candidates. Let’s now focus on their issues and go from there!”
