Bill Clinton plans to serve as a sort of diplomat-in-chief should his wife take up residence in the West Wing, he tells the Guardian in London, where he's on a fundraising jog and book-promotion tour. Hillary envisions a mission for him to "restore America's standing" after years of a unilateral position that has "enraged the world," said Clinton.
The former prez uses the Guardian interview to cool speculation about his potential role in a second Clinton White House, as well as to often his wife's reputation as hyper-ambitious. He says she actively ruled out politics at an early age, telling him, "I don't know if people would ever want to vote for me. I'm just too outspoken."
