PALM SPRINGS, Calif., (UPI) — Ex-U.S. President Bill Clinton says his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is so healthy she calls him her “first husband” because she’ll outlive him.
“She’s always been very, very healthy and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heartbeat. I tell her that, you know, she’s still got time to have three more husbands after me. So, I think she’ll live to be 120,” the former president said during a health conference in Palm Springs, Calif. “She refers to me as her first husband. Because I told her once she’s going to live to be 120 and have time for plenty more.”
Clinton also offered advice for his wife, who is leaving her post and is widely considered a 2016 presidential contender, despite her comments to the contrary, Politico reported Wednesday.
“My advice is that she should rest up and decide what she wants to do with the rest of her life,” he said.
The secretary of State recently was released from a New York hospital after being treated for a blood clot near her brain, following a concussion.
