Hillary hushes Bill
The week's news at a glance.
Bill Clinton now gets clearance from Hillary before becoming involved in public controversies, the New York Daily News reported this week. Hillary Clinton was embarrassed last month by reports that her husband was advising the United Arab Emirates at the same time the New York senator was denouncing a ports deal involving a Dubai-owned company. Now the couple has agreed that Hillary will get the final say over what Bill says and does, well-placed sources told the newspaper. He knows its Hillarys time now, said an advisor close to both politicians. A spokesman for Bill Clinton said that with Hillary preparing for a 2008 presidential run, the former president is willing to do anything he can to helpincluding, presumably, keeping quiet.
