President Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention, last night, got high marks from Democrats and Republicans alike, but not from conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer (video below), reports Mediaite.com.
Krauthammer said on Fox News: “I think it was a giant swing and a miss. Bill Clinton is a natural, but [he] struck out on this. I don’t think it will move the needle whatsoever."
"It was vintage Clinton in that it was sprawling, undisciplined and truly self-indulgent. This is one of the strangest nomination speeches, I think, ever given... I think it was a wasted opportunity of what could have been a great, stirring, rousing endorsement of Obama.”
However, Republican strategist Alex Castellanos told CNN: “This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama. Bill Clinton saved the Democratic Party once, it was going to far left, he came in, the new democrats took it to the center. He did it again tonight.”
