This spring, he denounced the Obama campaign’s attacks on Mr. Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital and went as far as to call the former Massachusetts governor’s business record “stellar.”
He also split from the president and congressional Democrats in an interview last month with CNBC, when he said that approving a one-year extension of George W. Bush-era tax cuts would be “probably the best thing to do,” even as Democrats sought to raise rates for households making more than $250,000 a year.
“No amount of showmanship can paper over the differences between these two presidents,” said Romney spokesman Ryan Williams. “Americans deserve a president willing to run on his own record, not the record he wishes he had.”
Michael Heaney, a political science professor at the University of Michigan, said an effective speech by Mr. Clinton could help give the Obama campaign a post-convention bump in the polls, but that it is unlikely to make or break the campaign barring a major gaffe.
“His speech in particular is not that important, but it’s a part of the party’s putting together a carefully crafted convention program,” he said. “What they do right is less important than what they do wrong.”
