    I was just watching the news and they were showing Joe Biden at a Rally in Pennsylvania.

    Hillary and Bill Clinton were there and Hillary introduced Biden....yahdeedah...

    Well up on the stage, i am guessing it was the end of the Rally, Joe Biden and his wife and Hillary and Bill were waving to the crowd...

    And there stood Hillary and Bill....then Bill had grabbed Hillary's hand and held on to it, while she was waving with her other hand....and even when she stopped waving, he continued to hold her hand....he squeezed it, she looked at him, he looked back gleaming....they smiled at eachother...with a twinkle in their eyes....

    Now granted, I don't know what goes on in their bedroom, if anything at all....

    But I will say that i think they love eachother, and in tough times, they stuck with eachother....it was nice to see them work things out and it was nice to see them doing something as simple... yet personal, as holding hands....

    I really do not think their relationship is all about their separate ambitions...as I once bought in to...

    Maybe the ambitions have been tempered. Maybe they both realise that ambition, while laudable, isn't a substitute for happiness?

    Maybe they have, or may they haven't Diuretic....I don't see ambitions as a stumbling block in a marriage...but a building block... if this is what the couple wants together.

    I just saw...love.

    What I think of as love...eyes and looks and smiles are telling...

    it was more than separate and mutual ambitions....He seemed proud to be by her side and truely happy for her...not wanting to be the star of the show, but humbly and genuinly proud of her...

    i smiled inside...and thanked God, for letting them ''make it'' thru his transgressions... :)

    Seeing Hillary speak yesterday made me wish again she was somehow in this race.

    Maybe Obama will make her Secretary of State!

    God protects the Clintons; why do you think He took her out of the race.

    Every relationship between two people is unique.

    We seek to understand that realtionship in terms we can understand and we fail to do so every time.

    Why?

    Because every relationship between two people is unique.

    while viewing your profile I found this gem. I have always thought I saw what you now see in regards the Clintons. AIt has been my experience that through observations what other people see in the relationship of the Clintons to each other that I don't see often tells me more about those people than they'd knowingly show.

    odd how projection (of one's own stuff and world view) works
