WASHINGTON (CNN) – He may be a former president, but Democrat Hillary Clinton says husband Bill won't take part in sensitive national security briefings if she wins the White House.
In an interview with ABC News set to air Sunday, the New York Democrat says her husband will assume the traditional responsibilities of the president's spouse, and it "wouldn't be appropriate" for him to sit in on National Security Council meetings.
"I think he would play the role that spouses have always played for presidents," she said in the interview, according to ABCNews.com. "He will not have a formal, official role, but just as presidents rely on wives, husbands, fathers, friends of long years, he will be my close confidante and adviser as I was with him."
