Mondale Excites

Former President Bill Clinton was the featured guest at tonight’s rally for Barack Obama and Al Franken, but another “former” also drew loud applause.

Former Vice President Walter Mondale (pictured with U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar) told the 4,000 people that he had a lot of experience in Washington, both in the Senate and during his term with President Jimmy Carter.

“Having worked there for four years,” he said of his time in the White House, “Barack Obama will fit just fine in that Oval Office.”

No fan of Vice President Dick Cheney, Mondale then fired up the party faithful with this line: “Joe Biden can go back into my old office –- it needs a cleaning out.”
