On the campaign trail with Bill, it's all about Hillary

Former President Bill Clinton made his debut solo appearance on behalf of his wife’s 2016 presidential campaign in New Hampshire Monday – a lot grayer, a bit trimmer and far more subdued than almost a quarter-century ago, when he rescued his flagging 1992 campaign in this key early voting state. Bill Clinton has scheduled two events there promoting the Democratic presidential front-runner later this week, according to CBS News. If Hillary Clinton becomes president, then America will have one of the most promiscuous “first ladies” in history.

TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE:

Hillary Clinton was campaigning in Iowa, but, Bill Clinton was in New Hampshire. His arrival does not guarantee success and the Republicans including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, attacked Hillary as going backward. ” “I’m a progressive Democrat who likes to get things done and who believes that we are better off in this country when we’re trying to solve problems together”, she added”. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to guests at a campaign rally on December 21, 2015 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Hillary Clinton was Zen-like about nemesis Donald Trump on Monday, shrugging off a question about one of the Republican presidential front-runner’s attacks on her by implying that some of what he says is divorced from reality. Clinton campaign spokeswoman Christina Reynolds said: “Hillary Clinton won’t be bullied or distracted by attacks he throws at her and former President Clinton”. Bill Clinton cracked some humor by saying he was out of place in today’s current political climate.

CLINTON:

You’re entitled to discount it, but I do know her. “We’ve got to do it. What’s the point of a New Hampshire primary if we don’t?” He made stops in Nashua and Exeter, campaigning for his wife. Hillary Clinton had some of her highest approval ratings in the wake of disclosures about her husband’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Most of the people I spoke to at the events were already planning to vote for Hillary Clinton. WOODS: I am, like, a Bernie supporter. “I’m going to let him live in his alternate reality”, she said. He also praised his wife’s experience in the Senate and as secretary of state, and calling her the candidate best fit to lead “an uncertain world”.
