>> well, what can we expect tonight? new hampshire senator jeanne shaheen , she's a long time ally of the work on the campaign.
>> new hampshire loves bill clinton .
>> new hampshire and bill clinton were stadium number one in the primary. there's always been this bond. what do you think bill clinton can do for barack obama that would -- would be sitting there going, boy, if somehow clinton wasn't speaking you would think, something's missing, what would be missinging?
>> i think he will continue to make the contrast case teen the difference barack obama will make for the future of this country and what we would see from mitt romney and paul ryan and i think he will identify with middle america . that's what he does so well, he empathized with families who are struggling, with people who are trying to put their kids through college, people who are hoping to have a secure retirement, people who lost their jobs and may be trying to find another job, and he can make the case for them about why barack obama is going to be so much better to continue to deal with our concerns.
>> interestingly enough. mitt romney mentions bill clinton in a positive light on the campaign frail. here's an example.
>> president obama tucked away his clinton doctrine in a large draw of bad ideas. maybe it was a personal beef with the clintons, but it probably runs much deeper than that.
>> clearly they see in their own calling something about clinton that doesn't resonate with independents. do you think president obama can somehow latch on to the clinton legacy a little bit?
>> i think he will continue to do that. i think he's done that for the last four years and i think he will continue in that vein. and independent voter ssz where this election is going to be determined. i think bill clinton can make the case at who's going to be best for their future and point out that's barack obama .
>> why is new hampshire so close when it hasn't -- the last couple of cycles, it looked like it was moving toward the democrats and all of a sudden a pull back.
>> the fact that barack obama is still leading slightly in new hampshire , despite the fact that --
>> you believe he's ahead?
>> i do.
>> that mitt romney has a home there, that he was governor of massachusetts , our neighboring state, i think is a reflection of people's remembering what romney did in massachusetts. you know, when he was governor, massachusetts was 47th in job creation . so we need better than that in a president.
