Clinton Encourages Ryan Backstage

ABC News got interesting video of former President Clinton speaking to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) backstage at a forum on the national debt.

Clinton praised the Democratic victory in NY-26 yesterday but added, "I hope Democrats don't use this as an excuse to do nothing."

Ryan responds: "My guess is it's going to sink into paralysis is what's going to happen. And you know the math. It's just, I mean, we knew we were putting ourselves out there. You gotta start this. You gotta get out there. You gotta get this thing moving."

They parted with Clinton telling Ryan that if he ever wanted to talk about it, he should "give me a call."

Here's the video:
