    Bill Clinton: John McCain and Hillary are 'very close'

    (CNN) — If Hillary Clinton and John McCain become their party's presidential nominees, the general election race is likely to be a love-fest.
    At least according to Bill Clinton.

    Campaigning in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Friday, the former president brushed aside suggestions his wife would prove to be a divisive nominee for the Democratic Party, pointing out how she has successfully worked with Republicans in the Senate — including one of the current GOP presidential candidates.

    "She and John McCain are very close," Clinton said. "They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they're afraid they'd put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other."

    The comments may not be welcome by the McCain camp — which yesterday faced fire from several of its rivals for winning the backing of the New York Times — a longtime archenemy of conservatives.

    Tactical move by Bill. Obviously, the Clinton machine now perceives McCain a threat. So they are trying to do whatever they can to meddle in the mud. They did this to Lamar Alexander in 1996, when they openly went on CNN, et.al., and released pressers saying Clinton feared him because Alexande was a moderate, blah blah blah, trying to scare GOP voters away from voting for a Federalist conservative. It worked. Clinton got his early Christmas present by running against Dole.
