He gave an unofficial "endorsement" to Romney last week.

CLINTON: I think he had a good business career. If you go in and you try to save a failing company, and you and I have friends here who invest in companies, you can invest in a company, run up the debt, loot it, sell all the assets, and force all the people to lose their retirement and fire them. Or you can go into a company, have cutbacks, try to make it more productive with the purpose of saving it. When you try, like anything else you try, you don't always succeed. I don't think that we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work. This is good work. There's no question that getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.
Yup, that sounds like an endorsement to me.

You. Moose-shelle, are one of the ugliest biyatches EVER to enter the White House. Your face makes wild animals scream in horror. You also were unsuccessful, with your ignorant and awful senior "thesis" at Princeton (where you never belonged academically) and with a mediocre (at best) career. If it weren't for your marriage, you'd be waiting tables in this economy.
You're as ugly as they come. You never made Oprah's money and half the country thinks you're an angry shrew and wouldn't trust you with a potted plant.
You are in no way superior to the most successful female billionaire in American history, just because she has a weight problem.
Had is right. She screwed up when she endorsed these "people". I'd take Oprah over the Obamas any day. Even still.

Oprah's new television network has lost a ton of money things are not looking good.
I hear ya. And I believe I know where you're coming from.

But I don't believe that Bill had anything to do with it. Bill was just the guy in the office when the surplus arrived. And probably, that surplus would not have arrived if Bill had not been forced to work with a Republican legislature. Remember, the Republicans sent Bill a welfare reform package three times before he finally signed it - then he took credit for it!
I don't think we know whether Bill is a fiscal conservative or not. He was never challenged with an economy that tested him.
