After confirming his victory, the first call of Barack Obama was to Bill Clinton, the man who worked hard to take him to the top. The popular former president was not with Obama in Chicago and was not mentioned in the speech of the re-elected president.
However, Clinton maintains a control over the American voters and his participation was very important so that the white middle class in Ohio and Pennsylvania vote for Obama. “If you vote for your hopes and not for your fears, if you vote for unity and not for division, if you believe that all of us can work together, all should re-elect Barack Obama,” said Clinton last Monday during a meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
This notable effort unites two politicians that in a same team, could bring a renewed energy and direction for the second presidential period of Obama. AV
