Divided: Bill Clinton and Obama

Clinton notably sabotaged Obama's campaign last week when he went on television saying Mitt Romney had a "sterling" record while running Bain Capital. The Obama message is entirely the opposite. One would assume the two of them to be friends working together but their actions reveal otherwise. Roger Simon of Politico shared this insight:
“Clinton is not on Barack Obama’s campaign staff, is not a trusted adviser, does not set Obama’s strategy. But Bill Clinton is pretty good at sabotaging Obama’s strategy. … Obama does not need Clinton undercutting him. The two are not close, but they are not supposed to be enemies.”
