When asked if President Obama's reelection chances might be improved if the Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives in the midterms, Mr. Clinton said yes.
The former president discussed the current state in Washington, in relation to his own two terms in office; Democrats lost control in Congress after a rise in anti-government fervor in 1994, and yet President Clinton was able to score several major legislative victories with the help of Republicans.http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/09/ ... 1548.shtml
Palin on GOP Leaders: "They're Not Likin' This"
"We're gonna take back our country and we're gonna turn things around!"She was campaigning for Republican Senatorial hopeful Rand Paul, one of the Tea Party insurgents she has endorsed - sometimes to the chagrin of GOP regulars who worry they are too extreme, unelectable, or both.
It's a reaction she apparently relishes.
"The hierarchy, and, you know, they're not likin' this,"
But Democratic strategists say the more Sarah, the better for them.
"The very best organizer and fundraiser for the Democratic Party is going to be here in Iowa - Sarah Palin," said David Plouffe.
Indeed, CBS News' latest polling shows the number of Americans viewing Palin unfavorably has been rising along with her visibility - 40 percent unfavorable in August, 46 percent unfavorable today. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/09/ ... ml?tag=dis
