>> I need you to work as hard for Hillary as you did for me.>> President Obama working the crowd for Hillary Clinton in all-important Pennsylvania, trying to conjure a little hope and change magic while Clinton battles pneumonia and the fallout from a botched attempt to hide it.
00:00:16
With polls tightening, Obama sidestepping Clinton's health and going right after her rival Donald Trump.>> This is a dark pessimistic vision, they're just fanning resentment and blame, and anger, and hate and that is not the American we know. That's not the America I know.>> And with approval rating that is now consistently above 50%, Ginger Gibson says there's no doubt Obama can help.
00:00:41
>> With Clinton off the trail, Barack Obama is filling the space that has been left, while she is home recovering.>> No matter how many times people knock her down, and mess with her, she does not quit, she does not quit.>> She need reliably Democratic voters to show up, and he was there to get that base excited.
00:01:03
>> Yes, we can, yes we can.>> Obama needs Clinton in the White House to safeguard his legacy, including his Iran nuclear deal and health care overhaul. And with Clinton laid up, he's happy to jump in.>> Do you mind if I just vent for a second? We see folks talking about transparency.
00:01:19
You wanna debate transparency? You've got one candidate in this race who's released decades' worth of her tax returns. The other candidate is the first in decades who refuses to release any at all. But Trump, not about to leave the field to Obama, hammering Clinton again for her basket of deplorables comment.
00:01:44
>> While my opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable, I call you hard-working, American patriots.>> Hillary's pneumonia keeping her off the trail for at least another day, with both candidates vowing to release more of their medical records in the coming weeks.>>
