As Hillary Clinton embarks on the first big official speech of her 2016 campaign, Bill opened up out in a new interview with CNN about their relationship — something they both rarely do. Hillary and Bill are largely relegated to a long-distance relationship these days, with their respective schedules often placing them on opposite sides of the world.
