(Newser) – The Clintons hit the campaign trail yesterday, stumping with Joe Biden in former Hillary territory in Pennsylvania, reports CNN. Hillary Clinton urged that Democrats "must elect Barack Obama," and warned: “This election is too important to sit on the sidelines of history." It was the couple's first joint appearance on Obama's behalf. The powerful pair will be more visible in the race’s final weeks, aides say.

"If you ask yourself who has the best ideas, who’s got the best instincts, who’s got the best ability to understand these challenges, the answer is Barack Obama,” said Bill in his most explicit support yet of his wife's former rival.
