Bill Clinton’s not just barnstorming the country this final week before Election Day for President Barack Obama.

Clinton, the 42nd president, has been campaigning for Democrats around the country – speaking on their behalf in all kinds of venues, Politico reports.

He has appeared at nearly 40 events for House candidates this cycle and has raised $1.4 million for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Politico reports.

Clinton has traveled to such diverse states as Arizona, Connecticut, North Dakota and Indiana — hoping to help Democrats hold on to the Senate.

And so far this week, he has visited Florida, Colorado, Minnesota, Ohio and Iowa.

“You just have to decide,” Clinton told several thousand people in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Wednesday. “Obama’s economic plan is better, his budget plan is better, his education plan is better, his health care plan is better, his plan to bring America together is better. That is worth standing up for.”

Such a busy touring schedule is unusual for a former president, but it is in perfect character for Clinton, whose wide popularity is as famous as his love for campaigning, Politico reports.

And the former president also has been an active Barack Obama surrogate, hitting the campaign trail and attacking Mitt Romney even as the sitting president returned to Washington to manage the post-Sandy disaster.
