Poll: Former president would be an asset to Sen. Clinton in White House

Former President Bill Clinton hosted a fundraiser for Sen. Clinton in March.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A majority of Americans think former President Bill Clinton would be an asset to Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, should she win the race for the White House, according to a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll.

If Sen. Clinton wins the Democratic presidential nomination and goes on to win the general election in 2008, 60 percent of Americans believe her husband would have a positive effect on her administration, while 30 percent think it would be negative. President Clinton served two terms as commander-in-chief.
