Did Bill Clinton Help of Hurt Barack Obama?

I found this quote from Bill Clinton odd when he campaigned for Barack Obama recently down in Florida:

I haven’t cleared this with him and he may even be mad at me for saying this so close to the election, but I know what else he said to his economic advisers (during the crisis),” Clinton told the crowd at a Wednesday night rally with Obama in Florida. “He said, ‘Tell me what the right thing to do is. What’s the right thing for America? Don’t tell me what’s popular. You tell me what’s right — I’ll figure out how to sell it.

You tell me what’s right, and I’ll figure out how to sell it? Nice. I want this guy in the White House.
Keep in mind, this was the same Barack Obama that issued a joint statement with John McCain about rising above politics in the face of the economic crisis, then called him “erratic” and accused him of not being able to handle multiple things at once when McCain decided to suspend his campaign to go back to Washington. After saying, “call me if you need me,” he goes back to Washington anyway. At first he claimed credit for the bill getting passed, but noticed he hasn’t said anything about it since.
First, we find out that Joe Biden has been muzzled, chained up, and thrown in the basement until November 5th. Second, we find out that Lazarus himself (Bill Clinton) has decided to praise Obama while making him sound like the economic moron we know he has been. I guess it just goes to show that Hell hath no fury like a Clinton scorned.
