(CNN)- Barack Obama surveyed a sopping crowd huddled in the Osceola County Stadium Sunday, taking in another 11,000 people willing to wait in torrential downpours to catch a glimpse of the change president.
He had been in the stadium before. It was October 29, 2008, and the Democratic nominee was making his first appearance on the campaign trail with Bill Clinton, the husband of the candidate he’d been savaging months earlier. In the stadium this year, as he urgently championed Hillary Clinton as the custodian of his presidential legacy, Obama levied a new barb at a candidate he’s said must not replace him.
“Apparently his campaign has taken away his Twitter,” Obama scoffed, issuing an attack line on Donald Trump that would barely have made sense during his first stop there eight years earlier. “They had so little confidence in his self-control they said we’re just going to take away your Twitter. If somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear codes.”
There’s little this election season that resembles Obama’s past campaigns. In 12 years he’s gone from a US Senate candidate, riding shotgun in an aide’s sedan through small-town Illinois, to a President landing on Air Force One in three states in one day to campaign for someone else.
