Clintons Make Rare Public Appearance Together

New York (AP) -- Democratic Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign is a million dollars richer after a major fundraiser in New York.

Former President Bill Clinton introduced his wife to elected officials and wealthy Democratic donors who filled a Manhattan hotel ballroom Sunday night.

Clinton described his wife's long career in public service beginning at Yale Law School where they met 35 years ago. He said he'd encouraged her then to pursue a career in New York or Chicago. And he said he's still amazed she followed him back to Arkansas, where he was eager to run for office.

Hillary Clinton vowed to pursue several specific goals if elected President, including universal health care, preschool for every child, and making college more affordable.

The Clintons will again appear together at a fundraiser Tuesday night in Washington.
