Shockingly, former President Bill Clinton channeled John Kerry last week.

Around the world, the former President said in Nevada Friday night, "every single political leader I talk to says, 'I hope your wife wins. We want the world to like America again.' This is the first election in my lifetime where a substantial number of Americans will actually cast their vote based on what they think the rest of the world will think about America." ...

You might remember during Campaign 2004 when Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., alluded to the coterie of international prime ministers and presidents rooting for him to defeat President Bush. ...

The claim was quite controversial at the time.

At a town meeting in Pennsylvania, one Bush supporter asked Kerry to identify the world leaders ...

Kerry refused to say. "I can't violate any conversation because no one would share something with me again," he said. Kerry also backtracked on what he'd claimed. ...

[D]uring a primary election, I do wonder why the former President would say that "every single political leader" he talks to prefers his wife over, say, Sens. Barack Obama, D-Ill., Chris Dodd, D-Conn., Joe Biden, D-Del., or former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C.?

And if you're going to make such a claim, why the secrecy? ...

I called former President Clinton's office today -- they declined to specify which political leaders he was talking about. No comment from his wife's office, either.
