Bill Clinton Explains Secret to His DNC Speech on The Daily Show

By

The ostensible purpose of Bill Clinton's Thursday appearance on The Daily Show was to promote the Clinton Global Initiative, but when Jon Stewart kicked off the interview by asking how it felt to "crush it" at the Democratic National Convention, the former president certainly didn't mind. "I worked so hard on that, for weeks and weeks and weeks," said Clinton. "I was just determined to get the facts right and to simplify the argument without being simplistic. I didn't want to talk down to people, I wanted to explain what I thought was going on." Stewart was particularly impressed by Clinton's passion for facts, which seems to have eluded certain convention speakers.
