RUSH: Clinton and Obama had lunch today, and did you see the body language on this? Clinton was as far away from Obama as he could get. Let me tell you what’s going through Clinton’s mind here when this happens. Okay, he gets this call from Obama, and Obama says, (paraphrasing) ‘Look, I want to come have lunch with you, I want you to come campaign for me.’
Clinton bangs up the phone, says, (doing Clinton impression) ‘I just don’t believe this, I had to go out there and stand side by side with my wife who is trying to feed off me, trying to build a career off mine, and now I gotta go out there and this guy wants to meet me, no doubt he’s gonna ask me to go out there and campaign with him to get his acorns out of the fire ’cause this little guy cannot do it on his own. He’s gonna rely on the professional, big time old Bill. I tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to do it. And you know why I’m gonna do it? Because the last thing I want and the last thing Hillary wants is for this little guy to win this election. It would be the worst thing could happen for her future and for mine. And so I’m going to make him think I’m going to help him out. But there’s one thing that I know, I know that this pick of Sarah Palin, that babe from Alaska, has united the Republican Party. The last time they were this united was against me, and if it hadn’t been for that little Ross Perot, I’d have never been president. They hated my guts, and I’ll tell you what, they’re messing up, the way the Democrats are making these mistakes here saying all this crazy religious stuff. So I’m going to go out there, and I know, the last thing I represent, standing there next to Obama, is the future. I’m the past. They look at me as the past. There’s nothing change about old Bill. Bill’s what you see, what you get.
‘So I’m going to go out there and I’m going to make Obama think I’m helping him out. It’s going to cost him big time. He’s not going to know what hit him. I’m going to be sandbagging, I’m going to be sabotaging his campaign while Obama thinks I’m helping, ’cause these Democrats still think that I am The Messiah, that I am the guy that still runs the party, and I’m the savior, that’s why they’re coming to me. But what do I know? I know that every time I show up with Obama, or any time I show up anywhere, the Republican base gets even more unified, ’cause there isn’t one Republican out there that’s going to vote for me or going to vote for Obama because I’m out there supporting him. And of course the idea I’m going to somehow be able to get these women back, only Hillary can do that and I’ve talked to Hillary about this, and she wants nothing to do with Obama. She’s got to campaign for other Senate candidates, retire her debt out there, so I’m actually glad they called me. ‘Hey, Bill, can you get my little acorns out of the fire?’ said Obama, ‘because I can’t do this on my own. It’s a little bigger than I thought it was going to be.’ So they come to me I’m going to do it. I’m going to make it look like I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had, like I’m back in my element. But I know that my presence and some of the strategic things I’m going to say, Republicans are going to show up in droves this election like they haven’t shown up in years and Obama is going to be history forever.’
