CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- They may not be enjoying any kind of political "bromance," but President Obama and Bill Clinton are certainly in close alliance this week.
Obama political strategists are loving the ads that Clinton cut for the president, so much so that they're running in heavy rotation as this week's Democratic National Convention unfolds.
The Bill Clinton speech this evening was the most highly anticipated endorsement of the campaign -- so much so that Obama actually came to town early to watch him give it.
And as Clinton spoke, he waited offstage to greet him.
In the balcony, First Lady Michelle Obama smiled, seemingly embarrassed, in the audience as Clinton kicked off his remarks by praising her speech of the previous night. He likes Obama in part because he had the good sense to marry Michelle, Clinton said.
