42nd President Bill Clinton addresses the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver to speak on leadership and to show his support for then-Senator Barack Obama. In this captivating speech, President Bill Clinton makes a case for the unity of the Democratic party in an attempt to unite them after the Hillary/Barack vote for the presidential nomination, and stresses the importance of aligning the support behind him following his successful bid.

Bill Clinton speaks to the fact that "America's leadership in the world has been weakened," a reference to the war in Iraq, and outlines the need for a new leadership method to combat the decline in income, the rise in poverty and inequality, and the disappearance of healthcare coverage, as well as restoring the country's claim to leadership in the world.
