CLINTON SUPPORTS ROMNEY'S BAIN CAPITAL CAREER
Former President Bill Clinton suggested in a television interview
Thursday that he believes President Obama's re-election campaign should
stop trashing Mitt Romney's work in the private equity industry.
In an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight,"
Clinton, a top Obama surrogate who is set to raise cash with the
president next week, directly contradicted Democrats who have attacked
Romney's business record, suggesting it does qualify him for president.
"I think he had a good business career," Clinton told guest host Harvey
Weinstein, a movie mogul who is one of Obama's top fundraisers. "There's
no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office and,
you know, basically performing the essential functions of the office,
the man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses
the qualification threshold."
Adding that he has "friends" in the private equity business," Clinton
suggested it was dangerous for Democrats to go after Romney's record at
Bain Capital—adding that in private equity, "like everything else you
try, you don't always succeed" in saving companies or making them more
"I don't think that we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work," Clinton said. "This is good work."
