Bill Clinton Tells Courtship Story, Makes Twitter Nervous

Hillary Clinton Holds Primary Night Event In Brooklyn, New York
First ogler.

Bill Clinton opened his remarks to the Democratic National Committee by detailing his courtship of a certain law-school classmate named Hillary Rodham. It was a sweet story, but one saddled with the misfortune of being told by a known philanderer.

Bill spoke of being intoxicated by Ms. Rodham’s strength and self-possession. But whenever he tried to crowd in on her personal space without asking, he found himself overcome by an uncharacteristic shyness.

I got close enough to touch her back but I couldn’t do it,” Bill Clinton said. “Somehow, I knew this might not be another tap on the shoulder. And I might be starting something I couldn’t stop.”

Eventually, Hillary got tired of Bill of silently ogling her.

She started walking toward me and said, ‘Look, if you’re going to keep staring at me — and now I’m staring back — we at least ought to know each other’s name,” Clinton said.
