Clinton double-team a hit in Iowa
by UPI

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is proving a big draw on the campaign trail with his wife, senator and presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The ex-commander-in-chief is spending three days this week helping his wife raise money and secure votes in Iowa in the months leading up to the state's first caucuses.

He also is scheduled to help the senator stump in the equally important primary state of New Hampshire later this month, USA Today reported Tuesday.

Several thousand supporters, some of them wearing buttons that read: "Miss Bill? Vote for Hill," turned out for Monday's Clinton rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

Bill Clinton spoke briefly at the event, calling Hillary "the best-qualified non-incumbent I have ever had a chance to vote for in my entire life" and insisting, "I'd be here tonight, if she asked me, if we weren't married."

The candidate then took the floor to talk about the Bush administration and outline her plans for health care, energy, education and foreign policy.

"I will work my heart out for you," she promised, then, indicating her husband, she added, "I will have some good help along the way."
