Bill Clinton talked up his fellow former Arkansas Governor in Sergeant Bluffs, Iowa this afternoon, and said he wasn’t surprised by Huckabee’s rise — in part because the other Republicans are so “dour.”
“Your Republicans are giving him a little boost here because he seems to be doing well in the caucus, and I’m not surprised,” he told the crowd. “He seems to be the only one who can give a speech, tell a story, or tell a joke. It’s a pretty dour crowd on the other side, and Mike’s pretty funny.”
“So we’ve got a little hometown pride going here,” he said.
It’s hard to imagine the Clintons being happier with a Republican nominee.
