Bill Clinton Cites Jewish Holidays as Excuse for Not Campaigning for Obama

Jonathan Martin notes Bill Clinton's hillarious assertion that he is waiting to "vigorously" campaign for Obama until after the Jewish Holidays:
... But when this is over, and after the Jewish holidays, which follow close on it, I intend to go to Florida, to Ohio, to northeast Pennsylvania, and to Nevada at a minimum. I may do events in Arkansas depending on what the Democratic Party does down there. And I've agreed to do some fundraising for them in California and New York. 

KING: Do they ask you, go here, go there?

CLINTON: Yes. 

KING: All right. (INAUDIBLE). Are you kind of feeling Jewish that you're waiting until after the Jewish holidays?

CLINTON: No. But I think it would be -- if we're trying to win in Florida, it may be that -- you know, they think that because of who I am and where my politic base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the cracker vote there.

But Senator Obama also has a big stake in doing well in the Jewish community in Florida, where Hillary did very well and where I did very well. And I just think respecting the holidays is a good thing to do.

Does it sound like he's anxious to campaign for Obama?

Funny that he's so sensitive to this.  Though Hillary has Jewish roots, didn't she just offend Jewish groups by pulling out of their anti-Iran rally?
