Bill Clinton Speaks at DNC

Editorial Cartoon: Bill Clinton Speaks at DNC Convention Seems former President Bill Clinton is needed to rile the troops at the Democratic National Convention where he has been invited as a keynote speaker.   Hope he can make it through all his lines with a straight face.  Not a secret the history between him and President Obama.

  1. I think Clinton can pull it off without laughing. It wouldn’t be the first time he said something he didn’t really mean.

  2. Jande says:

    Ok, being Canadian I have no clue about what is no secret between Clinton and Obama.

    And where’d the voting thingy go? o.O

    • Bearman says:

      I lost…you didn’t vote enough. hahah. j/k

      Go back to my last post Jande. All is explained there.

      • Jande says:

        Ok. But you were right I didn’t vote enough. Sorry. ;`)

        I think my main response ended up in your spam folder though, maybe?

        Now what was that about Clinton/Obama is it an *unmentionable*?

        • Bearman says:

          Nah…that is OK. It had nothing to do with votes. I think votes only counted if there was a tie in the minds of the judges. Plus it was a pain in the butt trying to vote all that often.

    Being an ex-president does let you lighten up. I’m guessing the history you are referring to is the campaign of Hilary. Oh, there is that first black president which I believe Bill was credited with.

    • Bearman says:

      No one calls him that much anymore. Yeah, I think there definitely was some animosity earlier. Don’t know if it really gone or they just sweep it under the rug for the good of the grand old party.

  5. Red says:

    Fabbo rendering of Slick Willy. *giggles*

  6. Mark Stokes says:

    Man, you really caught Clinton! Red face and all!

  7. Bo Lumpkim says:

    This just might be your best political cartoon ever Bearman. Well done.

  8. Comedy Plus says:

    He’ll do just fine. I love this cartoon. It’s right on the money. I also love how you make fun at both sides of the aisle.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  9. Mike W. says:

    Excellent toon and mug of Slick Willy. I’m still laughing. I’m sure he’ll manage a straight face, but he’ll be biting his cheeks to keep it.


  10. jynksie says:

    You should have put Clinton in a blue dress! …just sayin! [smirk]

  11. Wow, the Obama admin must really need help if they are calling in our first black president to speak at the DNC! 😉

  12. Tony McGurk says:

    Will Monica be there too???

  13. Oh Bill. His mouth usually gets the best of him.

  14. Binky says:

    Clinton was that jogger dude, wasn’t he?

  15. Clinton will be banging chicks like crazy at that thing.

  16. Mr. President… I feel… your pain!
    *giggle giggle bites lip and sticks up thumb*
    I’m sorry…
    I’m sorry…
    I think my speech writer did inhale!
    P.S. – Biden’s ‘comments’ seem to be getting a bit of press lately…hmm… do I get bonus point’s if Bill’s job includes introducing a new V.P?

  17. That’s ‘Slick Willy’ for ya.

  18. DadaHyena says:

    To Bill: If you can’t say something nice, just stick a saxophone in that mouth and entertain everyone!

  19. G. B. Miller says:

    Would rather listen to Hillary than Sir William.

  20. Friggin Loon says:

    He should have brought along Monica for some light relief , if you know what I mean 😉

  21. Its kinda Sad that they have to wonder about it.

  22. Cha says:

    Ahahahhh Clinton!! I recognized him right away!! Before reading the title.

  23. starla says:

    That is a great Bill Clinton I can almost hear his voice!

  24. George says:

    Has a president ever switched VP’s for their second term? It may be a stupid question, but someone has to ask ’em, so the rest of the group can feel smart. 🙂

    • Bearman says:


      “Which vice presidents were not nominated for a second term even though the president they served ran again?
      Aaron Burr was not renominated by Thomas Jefferson in 1804. Burr had killed Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton in a duel and was later tried, but not convicted, of treason for trying to help parts of the United States secede.
      John C. Calhoun was not renominated by John Quincy Adams in 1828. Instead, Calhoun ran with Andrew Jackson and was victorious, thereby serving his two terms with two different presidents.
      Richard Johnson was not renominated by Martin Van Buren in 1840, but was one of three candidates for vice president running on the Democratic ticket. Along with Johnson were Littleton Waller Tazewell and James Polk. Johnson, however, was recognized as the official nominee.
      Hannibal Hamlin was not renominated by Abraham Lincoln in 1864, and was replaced by Andrew Johnson.
      Schuyler Colfax was not renominated by Ulysses S. Grant in 1872.
      Thomas Hendricks was not renominated by Grover Cleveland in 1888 due to the fact that he had passed away in office in 1885. Cleveland campaigned with Allen Gransberry Thurman in 1888 and was defeated by Benjamin Harrison.
      Levi Morton was not renominated by Benjamin Harrison in 1892, who instead chose Whitelaw Reid as his running mate. Harrison and Reid lost that election to Grover Cleveland and Adlai Stevenson.
      Garret Hobart died in 1899 and therefore was not renominated by William McKinley in 1900.
      Henry Wallace was not renominated by Franklin Roosevelt in 1944, replaced on the ticket by Harry Truman.”


      Though the only one I knew and the one the don’t list is Ford changed his VP running mate from Rockefeller to Dole.
