US Presidential Hopeful Clinton Says Husband A ‘Tremendous Asset’ January 23, 2007

WASHINGTON (AP)–If elected president, U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., says her spouse and former Oval Office occupant will be a “tremendous asset,” but she’s the decider.

“I’m running to be the president, to make the decisions,” Clinton told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Tuesday.

Since formally entering the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination over the weekend, Mrs. Clinton has been repeatedly pressed to elaborate on what role her husband, former president Clinton, would play in her presidency.

When he sought the presidency 15 years ago, Bill Clinton described his wife as a political partner, saying his campaign slogan should be: “Buy one, get one free.”

Asked if that slogan would apply to her as well, Mrs. Clinton responded: “I wouldn’t say it quite like that.”

But she also said she would “count on his advice and his experience, not only here at home with the great progress that was made on so many important issues when he was president, but also what he knows about the world in which we find ourselves today.”

In separate interview on NBC’s “Today Show,” Mrs. Clinton called her husband “a tremendous asset.”

“He knows what the job is like. He had great success on a number of difficult fronts when he was president… So I’m going to be looking to him for a lot of advice and guidance.”
