Bill Clinton's Latest Campaign Controversy

Even some Hillary Clinton supporters have expressed reservations over the role of the former president in the campaign. Others have argued that the media and the Obama campaign exaggerate when it comes to his comments. Whatever the case, Bill’s mouth has gotten him into trouble again.

In the clip below, the former president says a race between Hillary Clinton and John McCain, “two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country,” would be great. The implication being, some have said, that Barack Obama doesn’t love his country.

Obama’s top military adviser, retired Air Force Gen. Merrill “Tony” McPeak, likened Bill Clinton to Joe McCarthy. The admiral himself has gotten into trouble for having a loose tongue on the trail.

The Clinton campaign called McPeak’s comment “an outrage.” And the vicious campaign cycle of comment-outrage-repeat goes on.
