The wealth question: Bill Clinton cleans up Hillary's clean up

(CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton is coming to the defense of his wife Hillary, and her suggestion that their family was "dead broke" when they left the White House.

"It is factually true that we were several million dollars in debt," the former president said Tuesday, speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative in Denver.

He also pushed back on attacks she's faced in the media over the comment.

"She's not out of touch," he said.

Did the former president's comment help Hillary Clinton, or just give this story fresh blood?

CNN's chief political analyst Gloria Borger, CNN political commentator and NY1 "Inside City Hall" anchor Errol Louis discuss in the video above.
