AC360° Senior Producer
Since his famous last-ditch speech in New Hampshire, where he asked voters to give him a second chance amid questions about his marital fidelity and draft record, and where in a ragged, hoarse voice he vowed in 1992 that he would fight for voters "'til the last dog dies," Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary have fascinated and beguiled Americans.
And they still do.
Hillary Clinton ran a flawed, but history-making campaign for president - the first woman ever to run all the way through the presidential primary season, and to draw 18 MILLION votes doing it – more than any other candidate in history, except MAYBE Barack Obama. There's still a dispute about that.
Tonight on AC360, Anderson and our correspondent Tom Foreman capture just what it is about the Clintons that fascinates, endears and enrages so many Americans.
What is it?
One clue: it's that fire in the gut, that deep determination NEVER to give up, evidenced that night in 1992 when Bill Clinton was sick as a dog and many had written off this small state governor's campaign...and now, in Hillary's operatic campaign that took her from inevitability to defeat, even though she somehow, like her husband, defied the odds until the end.
What else has ennabled the Clinton's to capture our imaginations, even after defeat? Tom Foreman can tell you. Tune in tonight on AC360 at 10PM. And see his blogs on it, here on this site.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
