In a press conference on the Clinton Foundation's expanded role in Latin American economic development, Bill Clinton commented on his part in his wife's "Sopranos" spoof video earlier today, saying he had no part in the conception of the idea. "I had a lot of fun doing it, but I didn't have anything to do with thinking it up," he said, adding, "I just got my lines and played my part, which is kind of what I do in politics these days."
Clinton went on to speak about the presidential campaign, saying that he's enjoyed the time he's spent on the campaign trail with Hillary, but that he doesn't foresee playing a big role this year. "I want people to get to know Hillary," he said.
He was also asked about the prospect of a presidential run by Mike Bloomberg. Although he refused to comment on a potential independent run by the New York mayor, he did -- as his wife did yesterday -- applaud Bloomberg for leaving the Republican party, saying it showed "good judgment on his part." But he added, "I already got a candidate in that race."
