Happy Holidays and New Year to everyone what a better way to kickoff 2012 than a post about the 2012 presidential election.

I think before we talk about President Clinton's 2008 DNC speech, I think we first have to talk about what led up to this speech and why he was speaking in favor of then Senator Barack Obama, instead of his wife Senator Hillary Clinton, who not only ran for President in 2007-08, but was the clear favorite and frontrunner to not just win the 2008 Democratic nomination, but to go onto win The White House. Because at this point there was nothing in life that President Clinton wanted then for his wife to be the first female President of the United States. 

I'm sure that President Clinton believed everything that he said in favor of Barack Obama during this speech. But this speech showed that he was a team player and could suck it up and learn to live with his wife's huge upset loss and be a team Democrat and understand that for the Democratic Party to win back The White House, he and his wife were going to have to get on board together and unite the party behind Barack Obama and Senator Joe Biden. When the Clinton's could've easily just became sore losers and almost hoped that the Obama/Biden campaign lost and that wait for 2012 to run for President again.
