Sitting for their first interview together, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine answered the awkward question of whether Kaine runs the risk of being a third wheel in a White House where the first gentleman is a former president.
The question had lingered in the background as Clinton made her way through the vice presidential vetting process. Nobody expects Bill Clinton to fade into the background should his wife win. And when he was president, Hillary Clinton's deep involvement in governing was known to cause tension with the office of Vice President Al Gore, who was competing for attention to his own agenda.
“It's an embarrassment of riches,” Kaine said in the interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday, putting the best possible spin on the situation. Then, Clinton jumped in, assuring that all will be harmonious and that Bill Clinton is nothing other than a huge asset.
