Bill Clinton talking about his potential to the “First Man” from the New York Post:

January 23, 2007 — Former President Bill Clinton, speaking for the first time since his wife declared her 2008 candidacy for the White House, said last night that he’s ready for his “supporting role” in her historic bid to follow in his footsteps.

“I’ll do whatever I’m asked to do,” the ex-president said of the campaign launched by his senator wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.).

“I am very proud of my wife. So is her daughter. I wish her well,” the former prez gushed. “I can only tell you that I know her better than anybody on Earth, and she’s got the best combination of mind and heart, the ability to lead and learn, to stand fast . . . and to make honorable agreements with people who disagree with her, than anybody I’ve known.”

This is quite humorous actually, reading about Bill “gushing” over his wife. One wonders if they even share a bed. I think it will be next to impossible to avoid the “dual-presidency” question of having Bill looking over her shoulder. She fielded questions about that this morning on Good Morning America.
