Former President Bill Clinton gave a speech typical of a presidential spouse on Tuesday, revealing that he had proposed to Hillary Clinton three times. We take a look at whether Bill Clinton is an asset or liability for Hillary when it comes to the economy, and also chat with some workers behind the scenes at the Democratic National Convention to find out the economic issues that are on their minds.
