CLAREMONT, N.H. — Former President Bill Clinton briefly praised President Obama's final State of the Union address Wednesday, telling a group of voters supporting his wife's presidential bid that "everything [Obama] said was true."
"Everything he said was true. We are in the best position as a country," Clinton said, echoing Obama's remarks to the nation Tuesday night. "We have higher rates of economic growth [and] we're creating more jobs."
He continued, "That's the good news. The bad news is we got the jobs back, and then some, but we don't have the income back so inequality is growing again."
Clinton will head to Dartmouth College Wednesday evening as part of his continued effort to bolster support for his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Despite leading the Democratic field nationally, she is currently polling 14 percentage points behind Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the latest Monmouth University poll of Granite State Democrats.
