Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks about her husband and former U.S. President Bill Clinton in front of two religious congregations in New York on Sunday (April 10).
Clinton asked for the worshippers' support in the upcoming New York primary saying, "It's especially important to me because I have loved serving this state."
"I did not anticipate leaving the Senate. I would have been very happy and honored to stay. But someone by the name of Barack Obama had a different idea," Clinton said.

She joked about saying no to Obama twice when he asked her to be Secretary of State, comparing that to twice saying no to Bill Clinton's marriage proposal.
At another congregation Clinton said, "I'd be proud to have him (Bill) as my advisor... I don't think I'll have him be picking out the flower arrangements for the state dinners."
Rival Bernie Sanders won the Democratic nominating contest in Wyoming on Saturday, besting Clinton and adding to a string of recent victories as the two candidates gear up for a crucial matchup in New York.
Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, has won seven out of the last eight state-level Democratic nominating contests, trying to chip away at Clinton's big lead in the number of delegates needed to secure the party's nomination.
New York holds its contest on April 19 and where a total of 291 delegates are up for grabs, more than 10 percent of the tally needed to win the party's nomination.
