Poll: What Did You Think of Bill Clinton's DNC Speech?

The former president spoke on the third day of the four-day Democratic National Convention.

A rotating cast of lawmakers and American citizens were center-stage at the in Charlotte, NC, Wednesday night, speaking to a stadium packed with delegates and millions of others watching on TV.

Automobile workers whose jobs were salvaged by President Barack Obama's auto industry bailout in 2009 were swift to praise the current commander-in-chief; laid-off Bain Capitol employees were quick to dig into presidential-hopeful Mitt Romney, accusing him of operating businesses without a moral compass. 

The later hours housed more household names, like Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland)—who assailed Paul Ryan—and activist Sandra Fluke, who enumerated on the Democratic Party's commitment to women's rights.

The night's penultimate event was an hour-long speech by former president Bill Clinton. He lauded Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and America's middle class.

After Clinton voiced support for Obama, delegates from the 50 states followed suit, officially nominating the current president to run again come November.

Ken Jenkins, a Westchester County Legislator in New York state, said the remarks delivered during the night were impressive.

"The speeches were outstanding in setting the tone," he said. "We are better off than we were four years ago; we need to move forward. [And] it's clear, at least from my perspective, that we need to move forward with President Obama."

The entire time Slick Willie was speaking could just hear Beavis and Butthead saying, "Liar... Liar.....

I'm not a Clinton hater, and I will acknowledge he is a good public speaker. But I think he needs to be held accountable for the way he has treated women. I would think that in West Hollywood, of all places, he would not be considered worthy of respect or, certainly, of adulation.

Clinton is a great speaker. He explains complicated issues is layman's terms instead of mumbo-jumbo political evasiveness.

This man is responsible for NAFTA ...which single-highhandedly has shipped over 10 million USA manufacturing jobs out of the country. Helped create this invasion of tens of millions of illegal aliens...along with Reagan. Bill Clinton is NOTHING to brag about!
