Bill Clinton Hits Campaign Trail For Democrats

Former President Bill Clinton says Democrats are not yet putting up a good fight. He is back on the campaign trail today, playing defense deep in home territory, where, in a typical election year, Democrats would be leading comfortably: the solid-blue states of Massachusetts and Connecticut. "It means there is no such thing as a safe state for Democrats this year. there is no such thing as a dark blue state," ABC political director Amy Walter said. "There is no such thing as a slam dunk election." Clinton is campaigning for an endangered species: longtime politicians including Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a Senate hopeful, and 30-year Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank, who crushed his last opponent 2-to-1. In three earlier races, the Republicans threw up their hands, running no one against Frank. Now, the president's point-man on the banking bailout is also on the endangered list.
