Bill Clinton is hell bent on destroying his own legacy and alienating the Democratic establishment while he campaigns for his wife. Today he accused Obama of running a “hit job” on Hillary

A poisonous new exchange erupted on the Democratic campaign trail Wednesday as former president Bill Clinton accused his wife’s chief rival Barack Obama of a political “hit job.” “I never heard a word of public complaint when Mr. Obama said Hillary was not truthful, no character, was poll-driven,” he told startled reporters.

“When he put out a hit job on me at the same time he called her the senator from Punjab, I never said a word,” he said, referring to an Obama campaign memo last year that attacked the Clintons’ links to the Indian-American community.

“Shame on you!” the former president exclaimed, berating the reporters for picking up on Obama’s attacks instead of focusing on the issues that he said mattered, such as the faltering US economy.

No matter who wins, Bill Clinton will still be a past president but he may relegate himself to the level of Jimmy Carter – the embarrassment no one pays to speak. If Hillary Clinton can out campaign Barack Obama she can win without Bill’s help, but his level of involvement shows the Clinton’s desperation to return to power.
