    Bill on Campaign Trail: 'Sometimes ..I Wish We Weren't Married'
    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton meet with attendees during a campaign stop Monday, Feb. 8, 2016, in Hudson, N.H.

    In his last appearance before the primary here on Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton said he wishes "sometimes" that he wasn't married to Hillary Clinton because then he could speak more freely, NBC News reported.

    "Sometimes when I am on a stage like this, I wish that we weren't married, then I could say what I really think," Bill Clinton said before introducing his wife at a rally. "I don't mean that in a negative way. I am happy."

    The 42nd president, who until now had been notably restrained in stump speeches for his wife, unleashed some harsh words against her chief rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, at a campaign stop in Milford Sunday.

    "The hotter this election gets, the more I wish I were just a former president and, just for a few months, not the spouse of the next one because, you know, I have to be careful what I say," he said.
