Romney says he expects Hillary Clinton to run on her own record

Former U.S. President Clinton and his wife Hillary attend the swearing-in ceremony of McAuliffe as Virginia's governor in RichmondFailed 2012 U.S. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said on Sunday he expects Hillary Clinton to win or lose the White House on her record, not that of her husband, former Democratic President Bill Clinton and his sexual indiscretions. Disagreeing with suggestions by some Republicans, Romney said he does not see Bill Clinton being much of a factor in his wife’s possible White House bid. “Hillary, if she becomes the nominee, will have plenty to discuss about her own record,” which includes four years as U.S. secretary of state and twice being elected to the U.S. Senate from New York. “I don’t imagine that Bill Clinton is going to be a big part of it,” Romney said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Tea Party favorite and potential 2016 White House contender, recently began referring to Bill Clinton as a “sexual predator” for his extramarital affairs, including one with White House intern Monica Lewinski.
