Bill Clinton: ‘Don’t get too disgusted’

Former president Bill Clinton, who knows a thing or two about tangling with House Republicans, has some advice for anyone annoyed by the current state of negotiations.

"Don't get too disgusted by what you see -- they're doing a little dance now," he told the audience at De Anza College's Flint Center Wednesday night. "I'll be very surprised if they don't do a reasonably acceptable deal."

Clinton also answered -- or at least, responded to -- questions about his wife's political future. "If I did know, I wouldn't tell you," he said when asked if Hillary Clinton would run for president. "She's in great shape; she has unbelievable stamina," he said, but she needs some rest before she decides on her next move.
