Hillary's Convenient Coughing Fit Stopped Her Answer on Bill's Role

February 6th, 2008 6:01 AM

Sometimes a cough is just a cough, and sometimes a cough is a way to avoid answering messy questions about the role of your race-baiting, skirt-chasing ex-president husband with a penchant for perjury might have in your White House.

With just 20 seconds to go in a Super Tuesday interview on San Francisco's KTVU-TV, interviewer Ross McGowan asked, “How will you use your husband, Bill Clinton, in the administration?” As soon as McGowan mentioned Bill's name, Hillary's theatrical and oddly persistent coughing began--and coincidentally continued until time ran out.

Alas, the potentially uncomfortable answer to McGowan's question never came. Gossip site TMZ.com posted the video of Hillary Clinton's health crisis.
