Calling Bill Clinton

Steve Kornacki: "The high-profile help that he's lending Barack Obama -- starring in a campaign video about Osama bin Laden's killing, headlining a fund-raiser in Virginia last night, plotting campaign strategy with top Obama lieutenants -- speaks to Bill Clinton's unique status among former presidents: Not since Theodore Roosevelt a century ago has one managed to remain such a political force after leaving office."

"Clinton is more popular than ever right now, notching a 67-29 percent favorable in one recent poll, which helps explain why Obama is eager to enlist him in what should be a tight general election campaign. There really is no modern precedent for a former president being so actively engaged in a national election so long after leaving the White House."
