What do you do with a problem like Bill (Clinton)?

By Richard K. Barry

Sorry, I can't make him stop.

The Hill is reporting that staffers hired for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign “have been told that they must be ready to start their campaign roles at any moment — starting Monday.”

Given that Clinton signed the lease for a campaign office a few days ago and thus “started the clock on the 15 days the Federal Election Commission gives candidates from starting campaign activity to announcing their candidacy,” this is hardly news.

What I do find interesting is mention in the same story that “she will not be accompanied by her husband former President Bill Clinton” when “she launches her campaign and begins traveling to Iowa and New Hampshire.”

Bill is a legendary campaigner, but his baggage is considerable. And you never really know what he might say, not to mention that he could overshadow almost anyone.

Maybe a good problem to have, but still a problem.
