“I thought her husband was the best president in modern times but we can’t repeal the 22nd amendment,” said Bill Shackelford, a Clinton supporter.

Hillary said even though her husband inherited “a recession, a quadrupling of national debt and an increase in the deficit from former Republican president,” George H.W. Bush, he still made it better at the end of eight years.

“23 million new jobs, incomes went up for everybody, not just people at the top, middle class families, working families, poor families. That’s what were supposed to be doing in America,” said Hillary.
