Democrats were (predictably) bowled over by former President Bill Clinton's speech last night. But long-time Republican strategist and former Romney aide Alex Castellanos also said, "This will be the moment that probably re-elected Barack Obama... Bill Clinton saved the Democratic party once. He did it again."

Ryan Williams of the Romney Campaign saw things differently. He wrote that Clinton's speech "brought the disappointment and failure of President Obama's time in office clearly into focus."
