In the wake of the convention, Clinton has hit the campaign trail hard for his Democratic successor, wholeheartedly embracing his new role as “explainer in chief.”
With Obama’s post-convention bounce all but evaporated, the president’s campaign is putting Clinton back in front of a wider audience to recreate some of that magic before the president takes the stage at tonight’s second presidential debate.
