A second President Clinton might occupy a little less space than the first. Asked how her governing style might differ from her husband's, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton noted Wednesday that the former president, her husband Bill, has "a bigger-than-life presence." "He's like a force of nature. ... I don't even pretend to be that. That's not who I am," she said of Bill Clinton. Saying the "cumbersome" rules of the Capitol often prevent radical shifts, the Democratic presidential candidate painted herself as a measured politician pragmatically focused on accomplishing change bit by bit. "I'm somebody who just gets up every day and tries to push that decision a little bit further every single day," she said.
