Barack who? Bill Clinton sure looked like he was running for president during his speech to the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, which ran well over the scheduled time. He’s stayed reasonably quiet for the past four years, and apparently he’s had a lot stored up. Let’s turn to the Twitterverse for a condensed take on Clinton’s speech.

Clinton finally finishes up at 11:25, as “Don’t Stop” ironically comes over the PA system. President Obama emerges to embrace Clinton and the crowd goes wild.
@Vantine I think this IS shorter Bill Clinton.
