Bill on Sarah: "I get why she's hot out there..."

Yesterday, Bill Clinton had more good things to say about Sarah PalinFrom the NYT:

"I come from Arkansas. I get why she’s hot out there — why she’s doing well. You know, people look at her and they say — all those kids. Something happens in everybody’s family.”

Then he referred to the governor’s disclosure during the Republican National Convention that her daughter, Bristol Palin, 17, is pregnant and engaged now to Levi Johnston. “Glad she loves her daughter and she’s not ashamed of her,” Mr. Clinton said. “Glad that girl’s going around with her boyfriend. Glad they’re going to get married.”

Mr. Clinton saved a few good words for the snowmachine-racing stamina of Todd Palin, Ms. Palin’s husband. “Stayed in the race for 500 miles with a broken arm—my kind of guy,” he said.
