In your face, USC.

We asked you recently who was getting the better deal: USC, which will host sitting president Barack Obama Friday, or UCLA, which saw Bill Clinton last Friday.
It's a tough question: Obama is the most-most powerful man in the world. Clinton was a two-term POTUS who saw the country through unprecedented economic growth. Both L.A. trips are to campaign for Democrats: Obama will rally for Sen. Barbara Boxer; Clinton was here to boost gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown.
Tough question, yes, but a Gallup poll might have come up with a winner:
Former President Bill Clinton has the potential to do more good for Democratic candidates on whose behalf he campaigns than does President Barack Obama. The net positive impact of Clinton's campaigning among Democratic registered voters is +48, while the number is a slightly lower +42 for Obama. Clinton, however, has a significantly more positive impact than Obama does among independents -- and among Republicans.
Trojans, prove us wrong.
