Hillary Clinton is in Iowa today, greeting voters as time runs out before the caucuses. And Bill Clinton’s history of defending his wife suggests he will at least slug back. And that’s where virtually every correspondent assigned to her campaign showed up. Her GOP opponents, however, have wasted no time in trying to make him a liability. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have made tens of millions in speaking fees from addresses to Wall Street banks, insurance companies and other financial firms.

He lauded her record as secretary of state and provoked laughter by joking: “I didn’t think she could do that”, in reference to getting China and Russian Federation to sign off on sanctions against Iran. “They’ve been good to us”.
New Hampshire has a special place in the chronicle of Clinton resiliency.
In 1998, the House voted to impeach, or formally accuse, then-President Clinton of perjury and obstruction.
