Stumping with his wife in Iowa, Bill Clinton told a gathering that Hillary will win the White House “by a pretty good margin.”
During a Thursday stop in Glenwood, west of Des Moines, the former president also told the crowd that voters “trust” Hillary to enact healthcare reform.
“We have a moral responsibility to cover everybody, but we’ve got to understand the system we’ve got now costs you $700 billion a year more than any other system in the world would cost if you put it in America, so we’ve got to bring our costs in line with other countries,” he said.
“She’s offered a plan to do that.”
Hillary holds a comfortable lead nationwide over her closest competitor Barack Obama in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 47 percent to 25 percent. But the same poll found her in a virtual dead heat with Republican Rudy Giuliani in a head-to-head match-up.
The crowd in Glenwood gave Bill a standing ovation, Radio Iowa reported. But he said the gesture would be meaningless if Hillary does not win the Iowa caucuses in January.
