Sarah Palin: Bill Clinton was right about Obama, he wasn't ready

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin doesn't agree with former President Bill Clinton too often - unless it comes to criticizing President Barack Obama.

In an interview with CNN's “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Palin recalled statements Clinton made during the Democratic primary, when he was stumping for his wife, Hillary, in the 2008 campaign.

"I'll never forget Bill Clinton saying about Barack Obama and his story, his agenda, that it was the biggest fairy tale he'd ever seen," recalled Palin.

"And he was right, because Barack Obama was not qualified, he was not prepared, and the manifestation of that today is the problem that we see left and right in our economy," she said.
