CHAPEL HILL – Bill Clinton, a 6-foot former president on the run nearly a week, died Thursday after Carrboro police captured him outside a nursing home.
Sanford, who rescued the politician seven years ago to give her other high-profile Washingtonian, Janet Reno, company, said Bill Clinton was a happy pol. “He loved watermelon and grapes,” she said. And he always ate her red flowers.
Still, Sanford said she understands the officers had to think of the community’s safety.
“I would much rather pick up the phone and find out he’s dead than [hear] he’s injured someone,” she said. “I am glad, though, that he had as good of a life as he had.”
Since Bill’s escape, Janet has been sad, Sanford said. She has been lying down and sleeping a lot.
Madeleine Albright is still reportedly safe in custody at the Charlotte Zoo.
