Bill was pretty forcefully supportive as well.

I fully admit I got a little carried away in my criticism of the Clintons during the primary. We should all use this as a lesson in keeping calm even in the heat of a contentious political contest--including the upcoming election.

Demonizing one's political opponents can be counterproductive because it can make one look fanatical to undecided voters thus rub them the wrong way. It's entirely possible to attack people's ideas forcefully without becoming obnoxious. Preaching to the choir can be fun, but it doesn't accomplish much. Remember: aim for the undecided.
