(CNN) — Bill Clinton offered his first comment Sunday on his wife Hillary’s presidential bid, saying: “I’m proud of her.”

The comment, during a visit to Oklahoma City, marked the first time he’d weighed in on Hillary Clinton’s second run for the White House — which she launched with a video one week ago.

The former first lady and secretary of state held her first campaign events during a three-day swing through Iowa last week. She’ll follow that up with two days of meetings in New Hampshire, starting Monday.

Bill Clinton was in Oklahoma City speaking at the ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building there.

“When you strip away all of the little things that divide us it is important to remember how tied we are and how much we — all Americans — owe Oklahoma City,” Clinton, who was president during the bombing, told the audience gathered at the memorial built to honor 168 people who died.

“For 20 years you have honored the memories of your loved ones,” he said. “You have inspired us with the power of your renewal. You have reminded us that we should all live by the Oklahoma standard.”

Following the event, Clinton headed toward his motorcade but then backtracked to work the crowd, not leaving until he had shaken every hand and posed for lots of pictures.

    Anyone who believes in this old hag obviously doesn’t listen closely to what she says.

    She constantly switches sides in her statements pending on what group of people she is addressing.

    If she actually thinks that she is fooling the majority, she is an insult to all of us.
