Obama, Bill Step In For Pneumonia-Hit Clinton

Former and current US presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama joined the campaign trail today for Hillary Clinton, standing in for the Democratic White House hopeful while she recovers from pneumonia.

Clinton is set to return to the fray on Friday after several days of rest when she attends a Black Women's Agenda symposium Friday in Washington, with less than eight weeks to go before the election.

With Republican rival Donald Trump in striking distance in national polls and some battleground states, Clinton has suffered perhaps the worst week of her 15-month quest to become America's first female president.
