Bill Clinton pitched his wife's ties to Penn State in football-savvy Happy Valley. The former president spoke Thursday night to about 5,000 people at Rec Hall on the Penn State campus in State College. He's wrapping up a five-stop campaign swing through Pennsylvania for New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Clinton says Hillary Clinton would promote alternative energy sources to help reduce the reliance on oil, and help make college more affordable for students.

Some of the biggest applause came when he said he thought Hillary Clinton was the only candidate who had a brother and father who played football for Penn State.
