Bill Clinton: I may be the only person in America more enthusiastic about Obama this time

Once again, the Obama campaign team grunts through clenched teeth: “Stop helping, Bill.”

Clinton is basically looking for a humorous way to chastise reluctant castor-oil Obama voters, making fun of them for being so reluctant to buy into Hope and Change again, but he picked a remarkably tin-eared way to do it.  Unless he’s deliberately trying to tweak Obama, or even sabotage his campaign by giving Republicans helpful sound bites.

“Let me tell you something, I may be the only person in America, but I am far more enthusiastic about President Obama this time than I was four years ago.”  Is that meant to include Michelle Obama?
