Clinton and Obama Democratic convention
President Clinton bows to President Obama in jest after endorsing him at the 2012 Democratic national convention

At the Democratic national convention in 2012, President Clinton threw his weight behind President Obama in a major boost to his campaign for a second term as president of the United States.

Bill Clinton, formerly one of Barack Obama's critics inside the Democratic party, threw all his support behind the president's bid to hold on to the White House. Clinton in a 48-minute speech gave an argument for re-electing Obama to finish the job of securing recovery, a task Clinton said neither he nor any other president could have delivered in just four years.

"President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did," said Clinton. "No president, not me or any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years. But conditions are improving and if you'll renew the president's contract you will feel it. I believe that with all my heart."

With such a powerful speech put forward by the former president for Mr. Obama, isn't it almost clear that he is almost compelled to support Clinton's wife and the former first lady for her run for the presidency of the United States?
