Two term president Bill Clinton, on Wednesday, strongly supported his wife Hillary Clinton for the post of next US President. Speaking at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia, Clinton called his wife "the best darn change maker I ever met in my entire life" and saying that she was never satisfied with the status quo. Hillary Clinton, who was declared as Democratic Party’s official US presidential nominee earlier in the day, has become first female to achieve the nomination.
In the speech, the former president recounted the beginnings of his relationship with the former Secretary of State, detailed her decades of advocacy work and extolled her drive in public service.
"In the spring of 1971 I met a girl," the 42nd president told the crowd in Philadelphia.
"She had thick blond hair, big glasses, wore no makeup and she exuded this sense of strength and self-possession that I found magnetic," he said.
Clinton told how it took three marriage proposals before Hillary agreed to marry him.
"I married my best friend. I was still in awe after more than four years of being around her at how smart and strong and loving and caring she was and I really hoped that her choosing me and rejecting my advice to pursue her own career was a decision she would never regret," he said.
His speech is likely to create a caring image of Hillary who I sometimes pitted as cold and calculative woman by her opponents.
"She's been around a long time. She sure has. And she's sure been worth every single year she's put into making people's lives better. I can tell you this, if you were sitting where I'm sitting and you heard what I have heard … you would say this woman has never been satisfied with the status quo in anything," he said. "She always wants to move the ball forward. That is just who she is."
