AIKEN, S.C.---Former President Bill Clinton is making a series of stops across South Carolina today to campaign for his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton.
This comes in the days before the state's Democrats vote in the Presidential primary Saturday. The battle for delegates has become increasingly bitter in recent days.
During last night's debate in Myrtle Beach, Senator Barack Obama said he felt at times as if he was campaigning against both Clintons. Today Hillary Clinton, in a conference call with reporters, accused Obama of "looking for a fight" in the debate.
Bill Clinton defended the criticism he's aimed at Obama. He said he was part of the normal give and take in what he called "a great field of candidates."
The former President told a crowd of about 200 people in Aiken that even if he wasn't married to Hillary Clinton he would be there campaigning for her because he feels she's the best person for the job.
