Bill Clinton: This could be the 'last day'


Watch Bill Clinton's comments Monday.

(CNN) - Could this be Bill Clinton's last day on the stump this campaign season? The former president seemed to signal that his time on the trail was drawing to a close at a campaign event in South Dakota Monday.

"This may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind," he said.

The comment comes one day before South Dakota and Montana hold the primary season's final two contests. Barack Obama is expected to hold the advantage over Hillary Clinton in both states.

"I thought I was out of politics, until Hillary decided to run. But it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for president," Clinton also said.

The comments seem to suggest the former president believes his wife's campaign is coming to a close, though she has given no signs she is ready to end her run.

Earlier Monday, a Clinton spokesman denied reports the campaign is cutting members of it's advance team. And on Sunday, Clinton launched an new ad stressing she is the winner of the popular vote. She also argued to reporters that the party's superdelegates have the right to change their mind until the party's convention in late August.

    Dear Mr. President, I do respect you and Hillary and I will always know
    you love this country unlike the candidate your wife has had to contend with. He left his church but still believes in the principles of the Black Theology that has been taught there for years and years.
    Im sad, I really would have enjoyed a debate with your Hillary Clinton and John McCain because it would have been honest and both sides actually telling the truth about their issues. Now we are stuck with a liar, and angry American and his wife. Well, I voted for Hillary in the Primary, first time voting for a demo for President. May I also say that
    your wife has amazed millions of us with her smile, tenacity, and bravery. I love you both Sir.
