Clinton COS on Ryan: ‘This Guy is Amazing.’

This is coming from a Democrat. He was Bill Clinton's chief of staff and the head of Obama's bi-partisan debt commission which has the support of Warren Buffett.
The following clip would make a nice 30-second ad:

“Have any of you all met Paul Ryan? We should get him to come to the university. I’m telling you this guy is amazing. ... He is honest, he is straightforward, he is sincere. And the budget that he came forward with is just like Paul Ryan. It is a sensible, straightforward, serious budget and it cut the budget deficit just like we did, by $4 trillion. … The president as you remember, came out with a budget and I don’t think anybody took that budget very seriously. The Senate voted against it 97 to nothing."

Getting this ad up in swing states with a real buy behind it would do two things: It would go a long way to inoculate the ticket against the attacks on the Ryan budget; just as important, it would introduce Paul Ryan to voters as an impressive man and public servant. I think conventional wisdom doesn't yet appreciate how much of a positive Ryan can be for the ticket. Publicizing Bowles's comments could help shape the public's view of Ryan—and improve the public's view of Mitt Romney, the man who picked him.
