"I told my husband he's got to come out of retirement and be in charge of this because you know he's got more ideas a minute than anybody I know," she said.

Bill Clinton was actually booed in Logan, West Virginia, on Sunday, by Appalachian voters angry over his wife's stated willingness to let the coal industry die out.

Bernie Sanders is poised to do well in West Virginia next week. He's now publicly urging superdelegates across the country to rethink their support for Clinton because he does better in polls against Donald Trump.

So far they have not been swayed, and he would have to win over hundreds of them to close the gap.
