Clinton Fires Up Boston Crowd

JULY 27, 2004 - Posted at 8:40 a.m. CDT

BOSTON, MA - He's been out of the White House for a while, but former President Clinton still has the touch.

At the Democratic National Convention, he brought the crowd to its feet with velvet-gloved punches against President Bush, including the barb "strength and wisdom are not opposing values."

Clinton's speech may have been so good that Republicans believe it could hurt John Kerry.

A veteran G.O.P. strategist says it may be too much for Kerry to match in his convention address Thursday.
