Bill Clinton’s speech — in 1 word cloud

September 6, 2012

CHARLOTTE -- If you read this blog, you know that the Fix is a lover of word clouds. So, when we saw this very cool one on the most commonly used words in former President Bill Clinton's 5,000-plus words speech last night, our ears perked up. (The word cloud is part of a bigger analytical tool called "Say What" that was created by the good folks at the Washington Post.)

Here it is:

That word cloud will bring a smile to the face of the White House.  Not only was "jobs" the most mentioned word in Clinton's speech but "Obama" was second -- a frequency of mentions that immediately stamped out any chatter that Clinton was doing as much for his brand as for the Democratic cause more broadly.
