ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former President Bill Clinton made his first solo campaign appearance for his wife and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Monday (January 4), telling supporters in the key primary state of New Hampshire that no one in recent history has been better qualified to be president. The rally was held at Nashua Community College. Clinton touched on a number of issues ranging from heroin addiction to national security. He ended the speech by telling the crowd why he believed Hillary would make a good president. "I spent a lot of time thinking about this. I do not believe in my lifetime anybody has run for this job at a moment of great importance who was better qualified by knowledge, experience and temperament to do what needs to be done now to restore prosperity," said Clinton about his wife. Hillary Clinton, 68, has led the Democratic pack with little interruption since her announcement of candidacy in April. According to a Reuters/Ipsos survey that ended on Dec. 24, she leads the Democratic pack with 60 percent of possible support in the nominating contest.
