Bill Clinton to Campaign for HIllary
Bill Clinton is returning to the campaign trail along with all his different baggage.
For a number of months, the former U.S. president has for the most part stayed outside the bright lights of the 2016 race, mentioned most just in passing by Hillary Clinton the Democratic front-runner.
However, on Monday former President Clinton will out for his first campaign event on his own with stops that are planned in the state of New Hampshire a key state in the primaries that gave his own struggling presidential bid in 1992 much needed momentum.
He will be doing this just days after new attacks over sex scandals that are decades old and his impeachment, form Donald Trump the front-runner for the Republicans.
Thus far, Bill Clinton has been mum about the slams from Trump, following the lead of the campaign of his wife, which believes their candidate comes across as being more presidential through rising above what they said is the Republican’s crass tactics in the campaign.
However, Trump’s attacks have seemed to strike a sensitive nerve.
At an event on the campaign trail on Sunday in New Hampshire, Clinton was heckled by Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien about the sexual history of her husband accusing Clinton of enabling the former president to mistreat women.
Clinton snapped back at O’Brien saying she was rude and would never call on her, after repeated interruptions by the state senator of New Hampshire.
The former U.S. president as well has been known to get heated when he feels his wife has come under undo attack, as he did in the 2008 primary with remarks about Senator Barack Obama that angered South Carolina black voters.
Only days after the Democratic front-runner said her husband was her secret weapon last month during a campaign event, Trump starting aiming all his might directly at the former president accusing Clinton of mistreating women and his wife of enabling such abuse.
Those who support Clinton feel the attacks are not going to hurt Clinton, but rather backfire and hurt Trump, particularly during a general election.
