Obama Praises Clinton era
=Barack Obama likes to draw inspiration from Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Jr., but his apparent role models of late is someone a bit more contemporary: Bill and Hillary Clinton.With the economy in crisis and Election Day in sight, Obama can't say enough about the Clinton epoch - the job growth, the budget surpluses, the broad prosperity - and often lauds the former president's economic stewardship as a model."We need to do what we did in the 1990s and create millions of new jobs and not lose them," he told 6,000 people in Abington, outside Philadelphia, last week. "We need to do what we did in the 1990s and make sure people's incomes are going up and not down. We need to do what a guy named Bill Clinton did in the 1990s and put people first again."
The crowd roared.
