Late Saturday night, President Obama rallied supporters in Virginia with former President Bill Clinton and while the two were ready to handle business, VA Senate candidate Tim Kaine joked that Obama has become a “prop” in his own campaign.
“I’m sort of a prop in the campaign,” said the president to a crowd of nearly 24,000 in an outdoor arena.
“You know, I was backstage with David Plouffe, some of you guys know he’s sort of a mastermind of campaign organization and we were talking about how as the campaign goes on, we become less relevant. I’m sort of a prop in the campaign. He’s just bothering a bunch of folks, calling, asking what’s going on.”
Both Clinton and Obama made major points. Huffington Post reports:
Clinton, his voice hoarse from a flurry of campaign events, said he had given “my voice in the service of my president.” The former president vouched for Obama’s economic agenda, saying he had done a good job with a bad hand.
Obama, in his fourth rally of the day, sought to draw a connection between the flush economy Clinton presided over and his own policies for a second term, including increasing taxes on upper income earners.
Following this late night campaign, the president and Clinton will join force again today in New Hampshire in the final days before the 2012 Election.
We’re just a few days, hours and minutes away from Election Day, but Obama will campaign up until Tuesday.
