The former President Bill Clinton, sent from the Obama campaign, spoke to an excited, student-heavy crowd of about 1,800 at McNamara Alumni Center in the University of Minnesota Tuesday morning.
He deeply endorsed Obama and his policies in his speech, which touched on a variety of issues such as global warming, health care, women's rights and the economy.
"Obama is far more likely to keep us moving toward a more perfect union instead of being divided by ideology, by economics, by politics," Clinton said, reported by the Star Tribune.
It is no mystery why Obama would want to link himself to Clinton. Despite impeachment and other controversies in the 1990s, Clinton remains popular with a public that recalls the boom economy during his administration, reported by the USA Today.
On the same day, in Duluth, Clinton delivered a similar message to an overflow crowd. He warned of "the rise of the far right" threatening the country, Duluth News Tribune reported.
