Blue Horizons

Back in June, Bill Clinton's handlers didn't think he'd answer a question about whether his wife was running for president. (Although answer it he did — twice — and one of his lines even rated a laugh on

Clinton's appearance was the high point of the DLC's visit to blue, blue Denver — and from the looks of it, she could be back in town two years from now.
