Bill Clinton to campaign for Obama in Ohio and Florida

Former president Bill Clinton is to campaign next week for President Barack Obama in Ohio and Florida.

The announcement was made a day after Clinton gave a rousing address at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on Wednesday.

Ohio and Florida are two of the swing states that will be crucial to Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney in the November 6 elections.

According to political pundits, sending Clinton to those states confirms that the re-election campaign sees him as an effective surrogate for Obama.

In the past, the two men have been at loggerheads, most notably during the 2008 primaries when Clinton supported his wife Hillary's bid for the nomination.
