Former President Bill Clinton

FRANKFORT — Former President Bill Clinton is expected to be in Louisville Monday night on the eve of the Nov. 2 election to campaign for Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Conway.

“That’s what I understand,” Conway told reporters Thursday after a rally at state Democratic Party headquarters. “I’m getting the data like you all are getting it. I understand that he’s trying to visit five states and I understand that he’s coming to see us Monday evening.”

Asked if Clinton will be able to make it to Pikeville before the Louisville trip, Conway said, “I don’t know yet. I know his schedule is tight.”

Conway, who faces Republican nominee Rand Paul in Tuesday’s election, said the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is advising Clinton to visit states that “are real close, and ours is one of them.”

Conway said he did not know where or what time the event in Louisville with Clinton will occur.

Clinton, who recently was named in a national poll the most popular politician in America, attracted an estimated crowd of about 5,000 for Conway at an Oct. 11 rally in Lexington. Several Democrats said Clinton’s visit should have been in a rural area of the state instead of Lexington.

  1. Impeached President says:

    He is an impeached president. Is that the best the Dims have to offer is him? What a joke.

  2. Tommy Caudill says:

    He was never impeached, they tried and failed to impeach him. The only President to ever be impeached is Andrew Johnson, you all really should learn your American History.

  3. William says:

    Tommy,

    Ummm, you’re wrong. Clinton was most definitely impeached. He just was not convicted during his impeachment trial. But he absolutely was impeached.

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_Bill_Clinton

    So much for knowing American history…

  4. Tommy Caudill says:

    William,

    Evidently you’re not very bright, if you knew American History you would know if he was impeached he would have had to leave office. It takes both Houses of Congress to impeach and remove a President from office. He was impeached by the house but acquitted by the Senate, therefore there has never actually been a President impeached in our history. If you’re convicted in the Senate you must leave office immediately.

    @Impeached President

    Bill Clinton is THE most popular politician in the country today, looked upon favorably by 55% of Americans.

    You were saying?

  6. William says:

    Tommy,

    I think you are misunderstanding the difference between being impeached and being convicted at your impeachment trial. They are two different concepts.

    If you need proof, here is a link to the WHITE HOUSE’s website (currently occupied by a Democrat), with a profile of Bill Clinton, that reads as follows: “In 1998, as a result of issues surrounding personal indiscretions with a young woman White House intern, Clinton was the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives. He was tried in the Senate and found not guilty of the charges brought against him.” http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/williamjclinton

    See…the second U.S. President (the other being Andrew Johnson) to be impeached. He just wasn’t convicted.

    Are you ready to acknowledge you are wrong on this, or are you just going to continue to tell me how stupid I am in the face of undeniable facts?

  7. Paul says:

    Sorry @Tommy, normally I agree with your comments, but you’ve got the facts wrong on impeachment.

    Impeachment is the process, not the conviction. Clinton was indeed impeached, though unsuccessfully.

    So, yes, Clinton was impeached.

    MY point is, SO WHAT? He’s still awesome.

  8. Fail says:

    Jack Conway is bringing in the impeached, disgraced former President and adulterer to Kentucky? Hoo…ray?

  9. Paul says:

    @Fail

    See my response to “Impeached President.”

    I don’t think “disgraced” is the word you’re looking for.

  10. William says:

    Tommy, you got owned. Come take your medicine.

  11. […] accused rapist and confessed womanizer – Bill Clinton – is scheduled to stop in Kentucky Monday night to support Jack Conway, but with polling showing Conway has lost […]

  12. Hezas Ho says:

    Tommy Caudill is dumber than a possum with a concussion.

  13. Buck Feshear says:

    Hey Tommy, you might want to put some ice on that.
