Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) has been bringing her husband to major events on the campaign trail lately.

Former President Bill Clinton attended both a Democratic forum in Nevada and the anniversary of the Selma civil rights march.

Democratic voters have great affection for Bill Clinton. But his popularity may not be a clear-cut advantage for his wife's campaign.
