Susan Page: I Never Saw an Incumbent President Campaign with Such Enthusiasm

‘Never in those campaigns have you had an incumbent president campaign with that kind of enthusiasm for his party’s nominee to succeed’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
PAGE: "I’ve covered nine, this is my tenth. Never in those campaigns have you had an incumbent president campaign with that kind of enthusiasm for his party’s nominee to succeed. For various reasons Al gore didn’t want Bill Clinton out there. John McCain did not want George W. Bush out there. This is a case where Barack Obama's interest in sustaining his legacy and electing Hillary Clinton aligns with Hillary Clinton’s position. He wants younger voters and African-Americans to turn out in significant numbers. You saw his power to do that in that rally we just watched in Philadelphia."
