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."
