The Clintons have been as popular for Democrats on the campaign trail as President Obama has been unpopular, but Bill’s not willing to say if there’s any real difference between an “Obama Democrat” and a “Clinton Democrat.”

The term “Clinton Democrat” has appeared frequently on the campaign trail ever since Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes used the term to distance herself from Mr. Obama.

Ms. Grimes has since struggled to adequately detail any real difference except for a vague reference to “growing the middle class” in a recent debate.

Mr. Clinton didn’t seem willing to help her out with that narrative either, even while campaigning for Ms. Grimes, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

In a clip from WHAS-ABC, posted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign, Mr. Clinton dodged when asked if there was any difference between the two.

“I don’t want to get involved in all that politics,” the former president said. “It’s about people. It’s about what kind of future Kentucky wants. You gotta start voting for the people are going to help you and not be distracted.”

Hillary might need to get on her husband’s case if she’s looking to win the White House in 2016. Her insiders are worried that Republicans could effectively bill her potential candidacy as a “third-term Obama.”
