President Bill Clinton hit Piers Morgan Tonight last night to praise ... Mitt Romney? The former president, and Obama campaign surrogate, told Morgan that he doesn’t doubt Mitt’s ability to perform the “essential functions of the office.” After all, he explained, “the man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.” But while Clinton may think Mitt’s qualified to run for president, he doesn’t think he’ll win. “I still think the president will win by 5 or 6 points. I’ve always thought so,” Clinton predicted.
