Hillary Clinton delivered only a brief introduction, light-heartedly focusing upon the commonalities between her husband and the man who beat her in the fiercely contested 2008 Democratic presidential primary.
The former first lady noted superficial similarities — the two men are both left-handed and “fanatic sports fans,” she pointed out — before adding to laughter that “they each married far above themselves.”
Hillary Clinton exited before her husband and Obama stepped into the spotlight. But the air of bonhomie only deepened, if anything.
Obama endorsed her message about their respective marriages, while Clinton praised the Affordable Care Act as “a big step forward for America.”
