Quote from spacenurse
Now that you mention it I don't like the idea of the spouse of the President serving in Congress.
I do not think Bill is more moderate than she is. Both are more pragmatic than I like. I think elected officials should be honest.
And if they change their position they owe us an explanation ASAP, now when time to campaign again.
I don't think that Bill is more moderate then Hillary either. However, I think that he would and could be cast in that role as a foil against opposition to her policies.
The media loves Bill. If he comes out and guffaws the concerns of those opposed to this policy or that, it will make any Sunday news program he wants, week after week.
He could go on Fox News Sunday, smile coyly and repeatedly say, "There you go again, trying to misrepresent what X plan is about. You're sponsors must love you for this."
He could go on CNN and say, "Exactly what we've been trying to say, X plan is not nearly as controversial as the Republicans are saying it is."
