Clinton to Leno: Bill "Does Get A Little Carried Away Sometimes"

(CBS)
From CBS News' Fernando Suarez:

BURBANK, CALIF. -- In between fundraisers in California, Hillary Clinton made time to appear on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" where she admitted that sometimes former President Bill Clinton "does get a little carried away sometimes."

Clinton's answer came in response to a recent visit the former president made to a San Francisco delegate meeting where a delegate was discussing Richardson's endorsement of Obama. A reportedly red-faced, finger-pointing Clinton went off on the delegate in a tirade that covered Richardson's endorsement to the media's unfair coverage of his wife.

Jay Leno, the host of the show said, "there is no better campaigner than your husband, but the thing I found fascinating was to see him lose his cool when it involves the family…he got literally red-faced, I mean he looked like he was going to explode he was so mad…he just loses it."

Clinton laughed off the questions saying, "Well, I've said that a few times," adding that she told her husband "OK, honey that's alright, you know, we don't have to go and get excited about it."

Clinton took the stage to thunderous applause, and upon taking her seat she joked about her recent Bosnia trip blunder saying, "This is so great to be here, you know, I was worried I wasn't going to make it. Yeah, I was pinned down by sniper fire."

Leno said, "you know, in L.A. that might be true."
