    Bill Clinton lavishes praise on McCain
    Posted: 01:41 PM ET

    From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
    [​IMG] Clinton had kinds words for John McCain Thursday.

    (CNN) – Bill Clinton has long pointed out he has enjoyed a good relationship with John McCain, but for a moment the former president almost sounded like a surrogate for the Republican presidential nominee Thursday morning.
    Appearing on ABC's Good Morning America, Clinton said McCain's move to suspend his campaign and request a delay in the first presidential debate was a move done in "good faith," rather than as a stunt to halt falling poll numbers as several Democrats have alleged.
    "I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted — I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don't think we ought to overly parse that," Clinton said, sounding a familiar McCain Campaign talking point.
    A few hours later Clinton lavished praise on McCain as he introduced him at the Clinton Global Initiative forum, saying Republican presidential nominee had taken the lead in his party when it comes to climate change.
    "When most people in his party were thinking that global warming was overstated and maybe even a myth — he decided to look into it," he said.
    The former president also described the two trips that McCain took with his wife Hillary Clinton, “the junior senator from New York," to look into the issue.
    But Clinton has also been effusive in his praise for Obama in recent days, telling CBS earlier this week the Illinois senator is better-suited than McCain to bring the country out of the economic crisis.
    Clinton's praise of McCain also came days after he told CNN's Larry King Live he was looking forward to campaigning on behalf of Barack Obama, but was not planning on "dumping" on McCain.

    I think that Clinton wants McCain to win because Hillary would have a hard time running against a sitting democrat in 2012. And lets face it, they can address issues all they want to, but in reality, the Clintons dont care about anything but regaining the power of the White House.

    Besides, the Clintons have only lost one election ever, up until this years primary...(1980, if I remember right, Bill lost the governor's race to Frank White), and they are vindictive grudge holding people. I am sure that they privately despise Obama for taking away their rightful place in this election.

    Just my opinion.

    I saw the interview and the the word "lavish" is quite an exageration. He did said he is a friend of McCain and that going to Washington was a good things to do. But he also said he supports Obama and thinks Obama would be better with the economy.
