Hillary Clinton put a famous Arkansas traveler to work for her in New Hampshire today — her husband, the former president, Bill Clinton.
The New York Times reports he seemed restrained in his remarks. He resisted opportunities to jab Republican candidates and nimbly left alone a question about efforts to bring up his own past in his wife’s campaign.
If Mr. Clinton had a theme, it was portraying Mrs. Clinton (and himself) as high-minded advocates of “inclusive” policies — an adjective that he repeated several times — rather than exclusionary proposals like Mr. Trump’s call for temporarily banning Muslims for entering the United States.
“I don’t fit anymore,” Mr. Clinton said about the current political climate. “First of all, I’m a happy grandfather. I’m not mad at anybody.”
2016 looks like the year of mad so far, unfortunately.
