FILE - In this Aug. 27, 2008, file photo, former President Bill Clinton speaks at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The way Democrats and Republicans treat their ex-presidents at convention time reflects each man's personal popularity and also how well he's weathered changes in party politics. It helps to be a dynamite speaker, too. Clinton scores on all three: his speeches are rousing, if long; his popularity extends to coveted independent voters; and his centrist appeal plays well across today's Democratic Party. It's no wonder that Democrats are have forgiven, if not forgotten, that business about Monica Lewinsky and impeachment that seemed to have permanently marred his presidency as it ended a dozen years ago.
