Reid: Bill Clinton ‘Knows How to Feel Our Pain; He Is One of the Best Communicators’
MITCHELL: "Robbie was the Clinton campaign manager and now is the campaign manager. Now election night in conceding defeat, he seemed to downplay the importance of Nevada and South Carolina saying the first four states are only 4% of the delegates needed to secure the nomination and the March 1st to 15th caucuses are going to be the important factors, more than 1800 delegates. Is he already?"
REID: "I don’t know what they do to make expectations up, down. It’s hard to keep track of all that. All I know is on February 20th, 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon, Nevada time, we’ll know who won Nevada."
MITCHELL: "You know Bill Clinton really well and it’s been noticed he’s not been an effective surrogate for her in New Hampshire and Iowa. As some had expected. What do you think is wrong with the sort of the messaging of Bill Clinton in the campaign?"
REID: "I think we will have taken pause to think that Bill Clinton doesn’t know how to communicate. He did and knows how to feel our pain. So don’t, by any stretch of the imagination, count out Bill Clinton. He is one of the best communicators a president has ever been. He’ll be involved in the campaign, and Bernie’s got a lot of people. I repeat, as I said before, this is a great campaign. If somebody has been involved in politics, this is a feast."
