If These Walls Could Talk: Bill marries Hillary

By Dan Merica, CNN

Washington (CNN) – It all started because Bill wouldn’t stop staring.

President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton were married this week in 1975, and according to Hillary Clinton’s memoir “Living History,” their relationship started after she caught the future president staring at her.

“I noticed that he kept looking over at me. He had been doing a lot of that,” writes Hillary Clinton. “So I stood up from the desk, walked over to him and said, ‘If you're going to keep looking at me, and I'm going to keep looking back, we might as well be introduced. I'm Hillary Rodham.’ That was it. The way Bill tells the story, he couldn't remember his own name.”

Bill Clinton first proposed to Hillary Rodham after the couple graduated from law school and took their first trip to Europe. According to the memoir, after walking through London on their first day in the city, Bill got onto one knee on the shores of Lake Ennerdale.

POTUS's schedule for Friday, October 12

TGIF!! 25 more days until the election! On this morning after the debate, all the talk is about Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. President Obama told the press twice last night when he landed that he couldn't be prouder of his vice president. But today, he lays low. He has nothing on his public schedule until this evening when he goes to dinner with some winners of a recent campaign contest. He leaves tomorrow for debate prep in Williamsburg over the next few days. We can only speculate that there just might be some more debate prep going on today at the White House as well. Press Secretary Jay Carney will hold a briefing at 11:15a this morning and we expect more questions about the administration's response to the attack in Libya to come up as well as more post-debate analysis questions.

Full guidance released by the White House:

6:30PM THE PRESIDENT has dinner with winners of a campaign contest
