On "Starting Point" this morning, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) shares what he thought about fmr. President Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National convention.
"He walked right through each and every major issue, analyzed it in simple terms, even a politician could follow, and folks at home, if they're interested in that explanation, nobody did it better," Sen. Durbin says.
Sen. Durbin also offered up a possible explanation for what might be getting through to independent voters.
"There's so much hate coming out from the other side. I think that turns off independent voters more than anything. They know we disagree. They expect us to find some common ground," he says. "I remember when Jon Corzine told me after he was first elected to the Senate, he spent $65 million to get there. And he said, if that campaign had gone on for two more weeks, I would have lost, overwhelmed his opponent, but people reached the point where they said, we're sick of it. There is just too much of it. You've overdone it."
