New Haven -– As always, Bill Clinton made it simple. He told Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a first-term Democrat with uncertain re-election prospects in a slowly improving economy, that he had a good story to tell: Things were bad four years ago. You made them better. Just…tell…your…story.
Clinton offered Malloy this advice in various locales today around New Haven, starting with an unpublicized stop at Katalina’s bakery on Whitney Avenue, where the vegetarian convert examined vegan offerings, and continuing onto the stage at a modest fundraising rally downtown at the Omni Hotel.
Elections are always a choice, and Clinton told Malloy and Democrats that the choice in Connecticut is between a Democrat who did unpopular things in hard times and a Republican who bobs and weaves on what he would do on taxes, gun control, economic development and education reform.
It’s up to them to draw that contrast, sharply and vividly.
