Let's all welcome former President Bill Clinton to the presidential campaign. Clinton issued his strongest public statement to date in support of John Kerry and launched a drive to raise $10 million in 10 days. "It's our chance to give John Kerry the kind of immediate, dramatic support he needs to stand toe-to-toe with the President and force him to debate the real issues in this campaign," Clinton's statement said. Look for Clinton's smiling mug on Kerry's Web site, with this message: "Today you and I can send a powerful message to John Kerry. We can promise him that we will never let him stand alone in the face of Republican attacks. "
