From ‘likable enough’ to lovefest, Obama to hail Clinton


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — It was long ago and far away when Barack Obama snippily remarked, “You’re likable enough, Hillary.” It’s a lovefest now.

Shortly after Hillary Clinton formally captured the Democratic nomination and declared the glass ceiling cracked and nearly shattered, her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton delivered an expansive and passionate testimonial Tuesday night. He offered a deeply personal — though sanitized — account of their relationship, a policy-driven ode to the “best darn change-maker I have ever met.”

Tonight, the current president is joining her party — for it is her party now — in making the case to the nation for electing the former first lady, senator and secretary of state as the first woman to occupy the Oval Office.
