AP: Bill Clinton will have an up-front role in this summer’s Democratic national convention, where he will make a forceful case for Barack Obama’s re-election and his economic vision for the country, several Obama campaign and party officials have said.

…. Obama personally asked Clinton to speak at the convention and place Obama’s name in nomination, and Clinton enthusiastically accepted, officials said on Sunday. George Bush, the last Republican to hold the White House, remains politically toxic in some circles. While Bush has endorsed Romney, he is not involved in his campaign and has said he does not plan to attend the Republican convention.

Clinton will speak in prime-time at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, on 5 September, the night before Obama formally accepts the party nomination. While the number two on the ticket often speaks that night, the Obama campaign has instead decided that Obama and the vice-president, Joe Biden, will speak on the same night.

Biden will introduce Obama on 6 September before the more than 70,000 people expected to fill an outdoor stadium in Charlotte and millions more on television.

I’ve been trying hard lately to cut down on my use of obscene language, so for that reason I’m avoiding posting anything on Romney in Israel …. it’ll only bring out the very worst in me.

How are you all doing?

Have a lovely day tomorrow everyone – or today, if you’re one of our Australian or New Zealand friends!

I just want to thank you all for keeping me company on this amazing journey. So many highs, so many lows, it’s been a bumpy ride. But on the bad days we’ve raised each others’ spirits, and I can never ever thank you enough for that.

You make me think, learn, smile, laugh, cry, the whole lot, I’m richer for knowing you all. You’re just the very loveliest bunch of people.

My heart goes out to those of you who have lost loved ones in the last year or two, I know Christmas will be desperately lonely for you. If you ever need a friend, drop in here – you’ll always find support. And take good care of yourself.

Wishing you all good health and happiness, we’ve a busy year ahead, I need you fired up and ready to go – okay?

Love ya.

ABC: “20/20″ visited two New York City schools to talk to students and get their feedback on the president. We asked students in grades five through 12 at Frederick Douglass Academy and P.S. 199 Jessie Isador Straus School to describe the president in one word. Watch below to see what they came up with:

The Guardian: Sarah Palin wants to show to the Republican right that she is the true keeper of the Ronald Reagan flame by meeting the late president’s closest ally on the world stage. A meeting with Margaret Thatcher in the centenary year of Reagan’s birth would be the perfect way of launching her bid for the Republican nomination for the 2012 US presidential election.

This is what Palin told Christina Lamb in the Sunday Times: “I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way. I am just hoping Mrs Thatcher is well enough to see me as I so admire her.”

It appears that the former prime minister has no intention of meeting the darling of the Tea Party movement … This is what one ally tells me:

Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.”

Thank you Meta!

It should be said, Thatcher was/is nuts too, so there might have been a meeting of minds :???:

***

I did it again, I visited Teabagger-land to see their reaction to this, seeing as they adore Thatcher almost as much as the half-termer. I loved this response from someone who reckoned it was all explained by Britain’s moral ‘decline':

Yes, the British have chosen to live under “shiria” law and “whorship” gay people.
