Bill Clinton yesterday suggested that his controversial comments preceding the South Carolina primary were a mistake. Said Bill:

"The mistake that I made is to think that I was a spouse like any other spouse, who could defend his candidate," he said. "I think I can promote Hillary but not defend her, because I was president. I have to let her defend herself or have someone else defend her."

He followed up with, "I don't want to be the story."
