Kuala Lumpur, Sept 20 (ANI): Former US President Bill Clinton has said that President Obama's re-election chances might be improved if the Democrats lose control of the House of Representatives in the November mid-term polls.

According to CBS News, Clinton said: "Well, I think it would increase his chances of being re-elected. Whether it would be good for the country or not, I don't know. You said that's part of the narrative."

He further stated that even before running for president, Obama had begun to build friendships among Republicans, and made overtures towards continuing to work in a bipartisan manner.

Clinton said that Obama is still fighting for specific things on small business and manufacturing and all the stimulus money that had not been spent for clean energy stuff.

"He's out there combating the opposition now. Maybe that will make a difference, I think we'll do better," he added. (ANI)
