Truly the Bard is designed as a utility class, and like a pinch-hitter in baseball, can cover the scope of a Cleric, Wizard, Rogue and even Fighter. While the Bard does not perform any of these jobs as effectively as the original class, the Bard's ability to mix and match or to re-spec spells allows them to fulfill differing roles dependent upon the needs of the party.
