Barack Obama today made a belated personal appeal to Bill Clinton for advice on how to fight back against a resurgent Republican presidential campaign.

The lunchtime meeting in New York between the two towering Democratic figures comes amid growing despair at Obama’s slide in the polls over the last week. Democratic figures are openly expressing fears that Obama does not have a strategy to counter the rising appeal of John McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Although Clinton extravagantly praised Obama in his speech to the Democratic convention in Denver last month, the relationship between the two has remained strained from the bitter Democratic primary campaign against Hillary Clinton earlier this year. Source Article
