With Democrats from Bernie Sanders to Barack Obama to Elizabeth Warren out on the campaign trail for Joe Biden's campaign, one unanswered question is where is Bill Clinton? President Clinton made a brief video appearance at the Democratic National Convention, but aside from that he's been publicly invisible in the closing stretch of the 2020 presidential campaign.
There's got to be somewhere that Clinton could be helpful. Florida? North Carolina? Texas? Georgia? New Hampshire? Maybe Biden has asked and Clinton has declined for pandemic-related or other reasons. Or maybe the Biden camp is afraid that Clinton will usurp the spotlight somehow and derail a campaign that the Biden people think has been going pretty well.
Whatever the reason, the absence is glaring. If Biden winds up losing the electoral vote because of close defeats in some of the states listed above, not enlisting Bill Clinton to help close the deal is going to look in retrospect like Hillary not visiting Wisconsin in 2016. After such an election loss, Clinton himself would not be shy, I predict, about letting this be known.
