It was "night and day" hearing President Obama and President Clinton's health care chat versus Sen. Ted Cruz's, R-Texas, 21-hour "filibuster," the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jr., tells Whispers. "Such clowning really helps President Obama, to see the contrast between the wise man and the clown," Jackson said Wednesday.

 Jackson has been in attendance at the Clinton Global Initiative's annual confab in New York this week and felt POTUS laid out the Affordable Care Act well when talking to Clinton Tuesday.

"I thought that talking it out with Bill made the issue simpler than just sound bites you see on TV," Jackson gushed.

Despite the chatter on Capitol Hill, the civil rights activist felt the law was firmly in place. "It's really Obamacares," Jackson said. "Cares for the people transitioning between jobs...cares for health care for everybody. Obamacares is more appropriate language," he said.
