Bill Clinton: Disclose donor names, but not mine

"Former president Bill Clinton says he's totally in favor of disclosing donors to presidential libraries and foundations, but he's not about to name those who gave to his.

A day after Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) ducked a debate question on the topic, her husband said he "would be happy to honor any disclosure requirement that affects all people equally."

However, he said he wouldn't want to name those who have donated already 'because a lot of people gave me money with the understanding that they could give anonymously.'

When Sen. Clinton was asked at Wednesday night's Democratic presidential debate whether the Clinton Foundation would disclose its donors, she said, "I don't talk about my private conversations with my husband, but I'm sure he would be happy to consider that."

Speaking at a meeting of his Clinton Global Initiative, the former President called the question inappropriate. "She's got no business being asked to speak for me in a presidential debate," he said.

Can't make this stuff up. Slick Willy believes he was a great President, his wife forever drags him around with her to raise money and speaks of him as the second coming of George Washington...but as is always the case with liberals...they are above the rules that should apply to others.
