Obama And Bill Clinton Speak

The silence between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton has been broken.

Obama's campaign said two men spoke by telephone Monday. It was their first conversation since the Democratic primary campaign ended with Obama defeating the former president's wife.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said they had a "terrific conversation" and that the Illinois senator looks forward to seeing the former president on the campaign trail.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been helping Obama by encouraging her supporters to back his campaign. But Obama's relationship with Bill Clinton was more frosty after the former president was one of his harshest critics during the primary race.

    Who cares if they talk or not. Grow up. Get a life. It is this reason that our government is in the shape that it is.Because our so called leaders act like 2 year olds.

    A London news paper quoted Mr. Clinton as saying "Obame would have to kiss his a** for his support". Have they kissed and made up?
