Bill Clinton Ready to Finish Paying Wife's Debt

Mario Tama/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- You could meet Bill Clinton and help his wife pay off some old bills at the same time.

The former president has emailed supporters to let them know he wants to get rid of the remaining debt from Hillary Clinton's failed run for the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.

In the overall scheme of things, the outstanding bill -- $73,000 -- seems like a mere drop in the bucket since it once totaled $25 million.  But Bill Clinton is intent on wiping the slate clean in the event the outgoing secretary of state has designs on another White House run in 2016.

Because his wife can't do any active campaigning in her current position, it's been left up to Bill Clinton to act as her surrogate.

The latest email offers a meeting with him, which would come at a price.

He writes, "There is nothing I enjoy more than good conversation with good people, which is why I’ve enjoyed it so much whenever we’ve brought one of Hillary’s strongest supporters to New York to spend the day with me -- and I’m happy to tell you that I’ve asked to do it again."
