CINCINNATI (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton has told supporters in Ohio that studying "game films" shows
Democrats are best able to improve the economy.
Clinton played on football analogies in a speech to hundreds of people packing a Cincinnati auditorium Sunday. It was the first of two events Clinton headlined for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Lee Fisher.
Clinton says the way football coaches use game films, voters can compare past performances and strategies to see which side's plans are more likely to work. He calls Republicans a management team thrown out after a 2-14 season.
But he says Democrats must overcome voter anger and amnesia.
A Republican spokesman says Clinton's speech is a reminder of failed Democratic policies.
Fisher has trailed former Rep. Rob Portman in polls in his bid to succeed Republican Sen. George Voinovich.
