Clinton’s speech a mystery to Obama campaign

SHARE Clinton’s speech a mystery to Obama campaign

None of Obama’s campaign officials will be checking out former President Bill Clinton’s speech before he gives it on Wednesday night, according to Politico.

Clinton will submit a copy of his speech to Obama senior campaign strategist David Axelrod just before he steps on stage, according to the blog, which is a rare moment of lost control for the campaign. Clinton has been writing the speech by hand– reportedly without a lot of help from speechwriters– so his moment may be a wild card in the otherwise carefully choreographed convention.

The former president is expected to defend Obama against attacks alleging the president is chipping away at Clinton’s welfare reform bill from 1996.
