Bill Clinton reveals how he met Hillary Clinton in his speech supporting her Presidential ambition

Bill Clinton’s speech that made case for his wife, Hillary Clinton at the Democratic convention Tuesday night was a historic moment. The onetime President of U.S disclosed how he met his wife and how their marriage has been. He started with opening line, "In the Spring of 1971, I met a girl." 

He recalled her "big blonde hair, big glasses, wore no makeup and she exuded this sense of strength and self-possession that I found magnetic."

"I followed her out, intending to introduce myself. I got close enough to touch her back – but I couldn't. Somehow, I knew this wouldn't be just another tap on the shoulder and I might be starting something I couldn't stop."

"We've been walking and talking and laughing together ever since," he said. "We've done it in good times and bad, through joy and heartbreak."

"We were married in that little house on October the 11th, 1975. 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."

"Some people say, 'Well, we need change. She's been around a long time,' " Bill said in a mocking sing-song. He continued with a fist-pounding fierceness: "She sure has! And she's sure been worth every single year she's put into making people's lives better!" 

As the Chicago Tribune put it, he was "a former president who wants to be first man extolling the virtues of a former first lady who wants to be president."
