And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed

Clinton's Role in Sestak Controversy Stirs Questions About His and White House Motives
Published May 29, 2010

"Also keep in mind, this is an unusual administration," he said. "It's a merger of the Obama wing and Clinton wing. We've seen that since the Cabinet was formed. Yes, former President Clinton does political duties for Obama and Rahm Emanuel."

Given the political connections among those involved in the controversy, it made sense for Clinton to act as an intermediary. When Clinton was president, Emanuel served as his political director. And as president Clinton promoted Sestak to vice admiral and made him his director of defense policy.

Emanuel has also been credited for easing tensions between Obama and Clinton after Hillary Clinton's loss to Obama in the 2008 Democratic presidential contest.

Obama appointed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and he has appeared with Bill Clinton at least 11 times since he took office.

But perhaps the biggest indicator that Clinton is seeking to add to his political legacy is his efforts in recent months to help Democrats avoid the failings of his presidency. In November, he rallied anxious Senate Democrats around Obama's health care plan after his attempt in 1993 collapsed. He has also been active on the campaign trail for Democrats facing a toxic environment for incumbents in this year's midterm elections.
