Bill Clinton rallies for Obama at UPenn

On a final campaign stop, former President Bill Clinton held a grassroots rally for Obama Monday night at the University of Pennsylvania’s Palestra sports arena.

Clinton was joined by former Governor Ed Rendell and Mayor Michael Nutter to address the packed audience, who remained enthusiastic despite the frosty temperature. Clinton urged the crowd to “vote for your hopes and not your fears” and told them, “I want you to wake up in the morning with a smile on your face, a song in your heart and a spring in your step, because America is coming back.” You can watch an excerpt of Clinton’s speech here.

Bill Clinton cracked some jokes, but made sure to address the hot button issues, including education, healthcare, and the economy.
