Is that you heard.
With President Clinton set to take center stage later tonight my next guest says the former president's speech could do damage to President Obama.
Joining me now is Anne Klein author of the New York Times best -- the amateur it's -- up last summer topped bestseller for one now.
Sixteen weeks sixtieth all hot water a while we're going to do with the creditors does not just look at the these are congratulate thank it's good to have you here.
Well let's start with that speech to -- to death of everyone's focused on it -- the language since been released this fairly innocuous.
But it's a big G.
He's released little drips and drabs of the speech but the actual full text has not been released yet.
Until and and we're now -- You know getting very close to the five million -- I'm I'm getting pretty excited here -- our.
Forgive me if -- was focused and has -- just it does somebody can present at all Obama doesn't know what's in this speech.
Now it's my guess that Clinton is still writing the speech as you and I talked you say he's writing.
I have I have had the the opportunity to see a number of President Clinton speech.
Informal and formal as well.
I happen to think he is the brightest most effective.
In my lifetime.
Are so I would worry about it if he's writing an average about a rise given us the -- after and say hey good evening ever we may have another -- Clint Eastwood moment here in which we're doing what I think goes global and does his ad -- thing.
But isn't it it remarkable that here here we have a former president who is now being asked.
-- you know as I said that they outside of the broadcast here's the president said the era of big government is over.
And curious championing.
A for a president who has made government larger than it's ever bent -- going -- no president has gone before well you know my theory about this is that.
Bill looks upon 2012.
As a interim election.
The important election that's when Hillary hopefully as far as he's concerned is gonna run.
The party since he left office twelve years ago has moved way overdue left and in order for him to.
Create the basis for Hillary's run he himself.
I think signal to the party that he's moved.
Himself a bit from the left so how -- how do you square about how -- the Democratic Party sort of because it's really only -- -- matter and the independence.
And the -- -- here as you you have a president who's the great centrist Democrat.
Who who welfare reform balanced the budget.
You know these are things -- a Republican can only dream well right now.
With the wife who was -- only to his laughed.
W -- you issue is are are good foundation for this.
A run for the presidency.
-- four years hence you know one of the things that he and Obama.
Have in common that he can talk about tonight.
Is in his view they've both been the victims.
-- right wing conspiracy round of Lewinsky.
If these these little Marc Rich Obama asks are we conspiracy is really -- Hillary deal not have a built or bill can say you know.
I was a great president this man has a great president but we've both been the victims.
I can see him saying that it that this speech do you think there'll be people looking for air sickness bags -- -- chatters.
If we start hearing a parade of victim -- across that stage but courts would well.
But there is don't forget this.
This atmosphere on the floor of this Democratic Convention.
And attractive you just played a little clip about.
God and Jerusalem and on what I heard was they were more people end up against god and Jerusalem this.
-- to be fair I mean we've got to be very clear it is and just the Democrats in national convention who sometimes take liberties were those board's vote.
Triple but but that -- is always it's great to see you congratulations on the -- much.
