Bill Clinton Will Return to the White House, If Hillary Asks


Former President Bill Clinton isn't in the debate hall during the first Democratic presidential debate. But he's watching.

Less than an hour into the first Democratic debate, Clinton tweeted a picture of himself relaxing in a television chair watching his wife, front-runner Hillary Clinton, on TV.

The Clinton campaign also sent out a fundraising email from Clinton during the debate.

"Right now, Hillary's making her case for why she's the most qualified candidate to be the Democratic nominee for president. I think she's doing great," a fundraising email bearing Clinton's name read.

"We get to do the easy part — supporting her with everything we've got," Clinton's email read, before asking for a donation.

Martin O'Malley, former governor of Maryland, participates in the first Democratic presidential debate at the Wynn Las Vegas resort and casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015. While tonight's first Democratic presidential debate will probably lack the name-calling and sharp jabs of the Republican face-offs, there's still potential for strong disagreements between the party's leading contenders.
