Bill Clinton Stumps For Blanche Lincoln

by Ben Hoffman

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Former President Bill Clinton returned to his home state Friday to help a beleaguered ally and delivered a broadside against some of the most powerful interests in the Democratic Party.

Using unusually vivid language to describe the threat against Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Clinton urged the voters who nurtured his career to resist outside forces bent on making an example out of the two-term Democratic incumbent.

He pounded the podium with Lincoln at his side, warning that national liberal and labor groups wanted to make her a “poster child” in the June 8 Senate run-off to send a message about what happens to Democrats who don’t toe the party line.

  1. So the Unions spent, I think it was $ 10 million to teach wayward Democrats a lesson. So Lincoln won . So running away from Obama and the Unions does not hurt you? There might be hope for the Democrats yet .
