The former President says: "I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country. And people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics."
The Illinois Senator accuses the former President of "troubling" remarks and of making things up, "mischaracterising", of making statements "that aren't supported by the facts". There need to be standards of discourse, he continues, and a former President has a special responsibility.
