PHILADELPHIA - The "best darn change-maker I've met in my entire life."

That's how former President Bill Clinton is describing his wife as he lays out her life story in a speech at the Democratic National Convention.

He cites her work as first lady in winning congressional approval for a children's health insurance program and a bill that made it easy for parents to adopt children.

The 42nd president tells the crowd that Hillary Clinton worked with Republican House leader and fierce Clinton critic Tom Delay on the adoption bill.

Bill Clinton says she did it because "she's a change-maker. That's what she does."

Among those in the crowd are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Chelsea Clinton - seated with the North Dakota delegation.
