At DNC, Bill Clinton Talks About How He "Met a Girl"

Speaking from the Democrat Convention in Philadelphia, former President Bill Clinton did his best to humanize his wife and Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton during a primetime address Tuesday night. 

Awkwardly, Clinton started his remarks by talking about how he "met a girl" back in 1971.

"In the spring of 1971, I met a girl. The first time I saw her we were appropriately enough in a class on political and civil rights. She had big blonde hair, big glasses," Clinton said.
