JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. (AP) — Fore! No. 42 and No. 44 are playing 18.

Former President Bill Clinton — the 42nd president — is joining President Obama — he’s No. 44 — for a round of golf at Joint Base Andrews in Washington’s Maryland suburbs.

Also in the group, according to the White House, are U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and longtime Clinton backer and strategist Terry McAuliffe, who’s running for governor in Virginia in 2013.

Mr. Clinton was a big help to Mr. Obama in the president’s re-election campaign — an exceptional surrogate who made dozens of appearances for the incumbent and vouched for his economic record.


Mr. Clinton also made a well-regarded speech at the Democratic National Convention and won praise for sometimes explaining Mr. Obama’s record better than Mr. Obama was doing himself.
