Bill Clinton Says He's Learned a Lesson

iWon News:
"Former President Clinton says he's learned a lesson from the dustup over his remarks on the campaign trail - he can promote his wife's presidential candidacy, but he's not free to defend her.

Bill Clinton also said that everything he said in South Carolina about Illinois Sen. Barack Obama was 'factually accurate,' but a lot that has been said about what he said is 'factually inaccurate.'

'I think the mistake that I made is to think that I was a spouse like any other spouse who could defend his candidate,' Clinton said, referring to his wife, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is waging a hard-fought contest with Obama for the Democratic nomination.

'I think I can promote Hillary but not defend her because I was president. I have to let her defend herself or have someone else defend her,' Clinton said in an interview with NBC affliate WCSH-TV as he was campaigning in Portland, Maine, Thursday."
