4 Bill Clinton Quotes About Hillary That Show How She Made Him A Stronger Person
Now it's time for a presidential "awww" moment. With Hillary Clinton's campaign gearing up, her former-president husband is full-force in support of his his wife's second run for the Oval Office. In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, which aired the day after HRC's first rally for the 2016 nomination, Bill Clinton praised Hillary with such great quotes. During this interview, and times before, Bill spoke up about his wife's trustworthiness, her resilience, her ability to lead the country and how Hillary has been the backbone of their relationship.
In the CNN interview, Bill spoke with Tapper about Hillary's role during his own administration and her ability to keep him going when things just didn't look OK. When Tapper asked him about allegations that Hillary isn't a trustworthy candidate (cue the email scandal of early 2015), he rushed to defend her. "Anybody who is still really close to their best friend in grade school is by definition trustworthy," Bill said of his wife. He said despite any public doubt, he knows his wife is the leader this country needs — and one that he has needed throughout their years together.
"A, I know her, B, I know the truth, and C, I trust the American people," the former president said. He continued by saying, "When people go to personal attacks this far before the election, it means they're scared of you. And they should be. She would be a very good president, and I think she's proven out to be a pretty good candidate. I'm very proud of that." In truth, Bill is proving to be the ultimate cheerleader-husband, and Hill's got a pretty good one on her side. Here are four quotes from that CNN interview that make us all want to sing our own praises about Team Hill-Bill.
