From NBC/NJ's Carrie Dann
He did it again.
Bill Clinton mentioned Ted Kennedy last night in Phoenix, Ariz., in reference to the "train wreck" of No Child Left Behind, as reported by NBC/NJ last night.
Today, at a rally in Clinton home state of Arkansas, he just repeated the same sentiment, perhaps a bit more strongly. He said that the education bill came about because "the president made a deal with Senator Kennedy."
Of course, it wouldn't be Bill without a spoonful of sugar. He added, "Neither one of them meant to mess it up."
Then a long riff on why it failed.
Event in progress...
*** UPDATE *** It is worth noting that Hillary Clinton voted for No Child Left Behind.
