WATCH: Bill Clinton Explains His DNC Speech On ‘The Daily Show’

Former President Bill Clinton stopped by “The Daily Show” on Thursday to discuss the Clinton Global Initiative, as well as Clinton’s widely praised speech at the Democratic National Convention.

“I worked so hard on that, for weeks and weeks and weeks,” Clinton told host Jon Stewart. “I was just determined to get the facts right and to simplify the argument without being simplistic. I didn’t want to talk down to people, I wanted to explain what I thought was going on.”

Stewart responded by comparing Clinton’s approach to that of Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. “That you would utilize in your arguments facts, and that you would attach numbers to them that were real,” Stewart joked, “I thought it was a bold choice on your part.”

    Wow… Just listened to the whole thing… If we can’t have this guy as president again, thank God the one we have has him on his team… Wow.

      Isn’t it amazing to hear a politician explain complex issues in basic terms. Also he is great at triumphing what Obama has accomplished versus what the right (shouldn’t they be called the “Wrong”).

      • CAThinker says:

        Yes! The ability to explain complex issues in basic terms shows an in-depth understanding of the subject matter. Back in my undergrad days (in the physics department) the measure of the depth of your understanding was your ability to explain a complex physics concept to a fifth grader (figuratively). Much like this – that man has an enormous understanding of the problem and unless you have that, you can’t possibly begin to solve the problem. And yes – maybe we should call them the “Far Wrong” or “Wrong Leaning”… And I’ll adopt if if you will!

  2. He is a national treasure. And in my humble opinion deserves every BJ he ever got. Seriously just in forign policy alone he is worth his weight in gold, the world hung on trying so hard to like us through the Bush years and it was because they thought WTH maybe there is another Clinton coming soon.

  3. Did Bill Clinton become exponentially smarter over the last few years, or did the Politicians of today just become massively dumber?

    Anyone wish he could be President again, or is it just me?

    Ahhhh….I loved Bill Clinton back in the 90’s and I love him today. As someone else mentioned, it’s good to know that Obama and Bill play for the same team. 🙂 I wish Clinton coud run again.
