Yes, the warm-up acts stole the show, but Clinton was a blaze of brilliance, showing his intellect and acumen as he took apart Republican lies piece by piece in front of millions. Eastwood? He's a Hollywood legend, and rightly so, but this is a performance I am sure both he and the Romney campaign wishes forgotten. Best example of "Eastwooding" was Chris Rock's tweet: "Clint Eastwood on the phone with Obama now: 'It all went according to plan,sir.'" Score this one a win for the Dems all the way around.

Whoever is president will shape the supreme court for the next decade or more. I hope everyone who votes takes that into consideration.

Now, Clint comes out comparing his speech(?) as Mission Accomplished. It sure wasn't mission accomplished, just as the original by Bush wasn't.

You have to hand it to Clint for telling it like it is.

Clint was wonderful - we own this country - it is ours - politicians work for us - when they do not do the job, we let them go. Totally correct. Clinton did a fabulous job laboring to cover up for a failed presidency of Obama.
