Bill Clinton addresses 2012 DNC
President Clinton spoke for nearly 50 minutes. This is not 1988. In 1988, they applauded the moment he said "In conclusion." This is 2012. Bill Clinton has rock star status in the Democratic Party. Only a guy with rock star status like the former president would have been able to speak for nearly an hour.
It's not how long he spoke but not only did he defend President Obama, he spoke policy. There was more substance in his speech than the entire Republican National Convention.
Politifact fact-check the job numbers that the former president cited and he was correct.
