Feng Li/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Bill Clinton was the headliner, but it was his wife Hillary Clinton who got a standing ovation in Washington on Wednesday.

Hillary Clinton attended her husband’s speech at Georgetown University which was the second of a four-part series Bill Clinton is giving focusing on the essential elements of “effective service” and detailing events that have shaped his career.

Hillary Clinton seemed to surprise the crowd when she entered the hall, receiving a rousing reception from the audience, that included a standing ovation. Bill Clinton got a laugh when he mentioned his wife and possible 2016 presidential candidate at the top of his remarks.

“I want to thank Hillary for coming with me today. It’s been a long time,” he said, stopping for a moment for loud cheers. “She hasn’t had to sit through one of these in ages.”
