Bill Clinton ready to campaign for 'Jews and Crackers'

Sure Bill and Hill are enthusiastically supporting Barack Obama's presidential campaign bid; sure they're going all out campaigning for him.  And because of that Bill Clinton, who is a fine Christian from Arkansas and just loves and respects everyone, has to take a break and will really, really campaign hard. According to Ben Smith of Politico:

"When [the Clinton Global Initiative] is over, and after the Jewish holidays, which follow close on it, I intend to go to Florida, to Ohio, to northeast Pennsylvania, and to Nevada at a minimum," he said.  (snip)

"But Senator Obama also has a big stake in doing well in the Jewish community in Florida, where Hillary did very well and where I did very well. And I just think respecting the holidays is a good thing to do," he said.

Yes, there is a significant minority of Jews in Florida and much smaller populations in the other areas mentioned, but people of other backgrounds live there also, who are not celebrating religious holidays at this time; Clinton can pitch to them without offending Jews. 

But never fear, in due time the holidays will be over and  Clinton will also begin campaigning  to his other natural constituency, or, as he put it

...they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the 'cracker vote' there."
Yep, gotta admit, with these vigorous actions and these soothing words Bill Clinton sure will hustle up a lot of votes for Barack Obama, Jews and crackers.  And Obama sure will be grateful.
