Bill Clinton’s farewell speech advice from Paul Begala

(CNN) – Paul Begala, a former senior adviser to President Bill Clinton and now a CNN contributor, wrote a draft of Clinton’s farewell speech, but said in a memo to the President that he didn’t include any mention of his wife, Hillary Clinton, and suggested Clinton himself should write that portion of the speech.

Margolies, the mother-in-law to Chelsea Clinton, was handily defeated as she ran in the Democratic Primary for Pennsylvania's 13th Congressional District. State Representative Brendan Boyle soundly defeated Margolies by 13-percentage points.
