Bill Clinton Learned A Valuable Lesson

Bill Clinton spoke to a WCSH Channel 6 reporter in Portland, Maine and admitted he made a few mistakes while promoting his wife Hillary Clinton for President. Speaking about the campaign in South Carolina Bill Clinton said, ‘Everything I have said has been factually accurate, but I think the mistake I made was to think I was a spouse just like any other spouse who could defend his candidate.” Clinton goes on to say, “I think I can promote Hillary but not defend her because I was president. I have to let her defend herself or let someone else defend her. But a lot of things that were said were factually inaccurate. I did not ever criticize Sen. Obama in South Carolina. I never criticized him personally.” Bill Clinton feels that he becomes a big part of the story and that it distracts from the real story he is trying to present. Clinton tells the reporter, “I think whenever I defend her, I risk being misquoted, and I risk being the story. I don’t want to be the story…..This is her campaign, her presidency and her decisions. And so even if I win an argument with another candidate, its not the right thing to do. I need to promote her but not defend her.” Then he ads, “I learned a very valuable lesson from all that dustup.”
