    I voted hurting.

    I watched a video of him yesterday and he got so red faced that I thought he was going to pop a blood vessel. I cannot see how that is helping Hillary at all.

    So I say, keep up the good work Bill :)

    So depending on what political side you are on, this could be construed as help ;)

    He spends most of his time talking about himself or in red faced anger.

    I can't see how this helps.

    Looking back on things, I cannot see how he was elected in the first place.

    It's ok to talk about yourself when you are the candidate, and I don't remember the red faced anger when he was running.

    But he was younger and the center of attention.

    I cannot help but wonder if somewhere deep inside of Bill he isnt resentful of Hillary and her desire to become President and that he may worry she will overshadow him and his so-called legacy....

    No doubt we did not see this side of him when he was campaining back in 1992.

    During the 1992 election, he was caught off camera after an interview totally losing his cool. I do not recall what the subject was, but do remember the incident.

    The thing is, Bush 1 was not doing that bad. (especially compared to this one). I cannot understand why Clinton was elected.

    Oh, and Bitsy, tell Bill I said hi.

    I voted "hurting" and I think that he is, but it may not matter so much now in the primaries since the Clinton's are so widely loved in the Democratic party.

    If Hillary gets the nomination and he continues to act this way, it will definitely hurt Hillary in the general election. She already has high negatives and his behaviour would drive them higher.

    I voted helping. This will be quite apparent if the recession is as severe as some folks are forecasting. The 1990s contrasted with a poor economic performance at the end of George W. Bush's term will mean a political bloodbath for the GOP in November and a comfortable victory for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

    There was a recession and George H.W. Bush seemed to be uncaring about the economic plight that many Americans were in.

    His attitude says to me that, as a former president, he thinks he's above being questioned.

    The way he talks about himself so often makes me wonder who would actually be running things behind the closed doors of the White House. He is so egocentric, I can't see him not injecting himself into policy decisions, whether she wants him to or not.

    I see the roof of the White House being raised aplenty with marital strife over the struggle for dominance between them.

    Her staff and cabinet wouldn't really know whose ring to kiss.

    Hill and hub would be at it tooth-and-nail . That would be a perfect recipe for a disordered mess of mammoth proportions . There would be a perpetual battle of two snapping turtles .

    Hard to say. Remember that Clinton left office with a 60+% approval rating, yet 7 out of those ten said they would not vote for him for a third term. People have misgivings about Bill. I'm one of them. I'd play golf or have lunch with the man, but I wouldn't vote for him.

    Probably because a lot of people like me voted for him, not once but twice!

    During Monday night's debate, Obama said: "I can't tell who I am running against sometimes."
