Why is Bill Clinton going so off-message about President Obama and the 2012 election these days? According to Politico, some “people close to Clinton” have an easy explanation: The guy is getting sooooo damn old!
Clinton, say associates, while mentally sharp, is older and a step off his political game, less attuned to the need for clarity and message-discipline during interviews. “He’s 65 years old,” said one adviser, explaining how Clinton in a CNBC interview managed to say that the economy was in recession when it is not.
