Is Bill Clinton an asset
or liability to his wife’s campaign?

With the exception of your first choice being one syllable too long, I agree with Ron.

They are two separate individuals, and should be respected/treated accordingly.

“They are two separate individuals, and should be respected/treated accordingly.”

I think realistically people have to consider
the prospect of a de facto dual presidency.

When Hillary puts up her sweetest smiles to Bill, it meant "will ya please mind you own business?!"

A true story. A month ago when several old friends had dinner in a restaurant. One of the lady's husband did not want join. He knew all of us five ladies and other two men(one is a friend and another was a husband who for the first time bought a birthday cake for her wife in some very long marriage. Why? because we were there to watch his behavior).He ate take away food and drove around waiting.

A strong minded woman is like this.

“Her expression was that of a classic “Don’t dare ask me to muzzle that Doberman!” frozen bystander. If she can’t control him, how could she control the country — or is that a fair comparison, given that his pathologies are far greater than those of our collective nation? It defies the laws of physics for such a narcissist to recede into the shadows, or yield to his wife, or play a private role, quietly calling in political debts.”

Think about Sarah and Rebeca. Typical women. They manage their marriage and offspring. Other than that, they left their husband alone. But do you see how Abraham and Jacob adored them?

Clinton is not a silly man.

“The recent roughing-up of Barack Obama was in the trademark style of the Clinton years in the White House. High-minded and self-important on the surface, smarmily duplicitous underneath, meanwhile jabbing hard to the groin area. They are a slippery pair and come as a package. The nation is at fair risk of getting them back in the White House for four more years. The thought makes me queasy… Mr. Bill punches Obama in the kidney and from the rear. When Obama whirls around to strike back, there stands Mrs. Clinton, looking like a prim Sunday School teacher and citing goody-goody lessons she learned from her 135 years in government… The style is very familiar to official Washington, not just among the Clintons’ partisan adversaries, but among their supporters. The man lied to his friends. All the time. They got used to it. They came expect it… We are sure to see more of Mr. Bill’s intrusions because the former president is pathological about preserving his own place in the spotlight. He can’t stand it when he is not the story and, one way or another, he will make himself the story. I used to be sympathetic toward Mrs. Clinton on this point. No longer. She is using her egocentric husband to do the low-road hits for her campaign. He is good at it—a real charmer if you’ve never seen his act before. Or is Mrs. Clinton’s husband using her? People can ask that question without disturbing the principles of feminism. Evidently, many of the mainstream party faithful want the Clinton team as their presidential nominee. It’s their choice, of course. But does the rest of the country really deserve this?”

Do I detect a bit of a pun there in "hilarious?"
