What Girls Said 2

  • Former president Bill Clinton helped support his wife's presidential campaign by giving an inspiring speech about her.

    The "political spouse" part means that the politician's wife or husband is expected to support them. In this case it's funny because he was the president and she was the political spouse, but now he's the political spouse helping her run for president.

  • He was being a good husband and supported her by giving an amazing speech.
