"Can You Hear Me Now?"

From the AP:
     The silence between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton has been broken, with the Democratic White House hopeful on Monday asking the former president to campaign for him during their first conversation since the heated primary.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said Obama is honored to have the former president's support.

     "He has always believed that Bill Clinton is one of this nation's great leaders and most brilliant minds, and looks forward to seeing him on the campaign trail and receiving his counsel in the months to come," Burton said.

     Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said the former president renewed his offer _ expressed in a one-sentence statement last week _ to do whatever he can to ensure Obama wins the presidency.

     "President Clinton continues to be impressed by Senator Obama and the campaign he has run, and looks forward to campaigning for and with him in the months to come," McKenna said. "The president believes that Senator Obama has been a great inspiration for millions of people around the country and he knows that he will bring the change America needs as our next president."

     Sen. Obama, please don't kiss his ring, or his ass.
