Bill Clinton offers support to Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokesman for Bill Clinton says the former president is committed to helping Barack Obama become president.

Today's one-sentence statement from a spokesman is Clinton's first comment in support of his wife's former rival since Hillary Clinton ended her bid for the nomination three weeks ago.

It's not clear what Obama might ask President Clinton to do. The campaign wasn't specific when asked.

An Obama spokesman says a unified Democratic Party is going to be a "powerful force for change" and that the campaign is confident the former president "will play a big role in that."

Bill Clinton will not be attending the unity rally between the two former rivals Friday in Unity, New Hampshire. His spokesman says the former president is in Europe this week to celebrate Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, give speeches and work for the William J. Clinton Foundation.
