Why do you think Bill Clinton is talking about Sarah Palin?

I'm not sure about others on here but I am very disturbed by former President Bill Clinton's kind-hearted, nice remarks about Sarah Palin and against Barack Obama! What Bill Clinton said about Palin was way too kind for someone who is supposed to be supporting Barack! This bothers me even though Obama is now ahead in the polls. It's almost like Hillary and Bill Clinton do not want Barack Obama to be our next President, yet at the Democratic National Convention they were telling everybody (especially Hillary's supporters) to support the Obama/Biden ticket. What gives with Bill Clinton's latest speech in which he basically said it wasn't nice that Obama's campaign ads were attacking Sarah Palin?!? And do you agree that it's as if the Clinton's really do not want Obama/Biden to be in the White House come January '09? Although I supported Hillary in the primaries, I'm now thinking I shouldn't have because I don't like the way she and her husband are acting toward Obama; they're both acting like two spoiled little children just because Hillary lost the nomination fair and square! This doesn't sit well with me; although I'm still voting for Barack Obama/Joe Biden on Nov. 4th. What do you think of how the Clintons are acting toward Barack Obama now?

I wonder about the actions of the Clinton family myself. If Obama wins the election this year, he will most likely be put up as the democratic candidate next time. That means Hillary would not be able to run again for 8 years. It's hard enough for a woman to run, but an old woman doesn't have much of a chance, so when Hillary saw that she could not win this year, did she sabotaged Obama, hoping that in four years she will be able to be on the ticket? It kinda seems that way.

Thank you glords for also responding :) I too wonder about the actions of the entire Clinton family! They are making it quite obvious to the American People and the Democratic Party that they do not like Barack Obama nor do they feel he is qualified to be President. It is pretty sad and pathethic how they're acting... like spoiled children who lost a game and don't know how to behave sportsman-like! And now I'm sorry I supported Hillary in the primaries because I thought she was the best person for that job; I was so wrong. Anybody who acts like a child should not be governing our country! Barack Obama is the best person for America because he fits the qualifications to lead the United States of America in the right direction again; he's a grown up who doesn't act childish and thinks before he speaks. Which is a refreshing "change" from all the politicians currently in Washington, D.C.!

Neither likes Obama or the way he was pushed by Ted Kennedy towards this presidential nomination. Obama doesn't like them either, lol. Yes, part of it is that Obama took the nomination away from Hillary. But I think they just simply loath each other and are on different ends of the democratic spectrum.

Thank you jonesy for responding :) I agree that it does seem as if neither Clinton likes Obama one bit, but especially because Ted and Caroline Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama early in the primary. Didn't the Clintons ride on Ted's yacht when Bill was President? Me thinks that the Clintons are very hurt by Ted and Caroline Kennedy's endorsement of Obama! And also very angry because they felt the nomination belonged to Hillary from the beginning... they were shocked Obama won the primaries even though he won them fair and square! Also, their speeches at the DNC were more about themselves than about Obama; I couldn't believe it! And yet I once liked the Clintons...
