Bill even presided over her wedding to Representative Anthony Weiner. “Abedin has the energy of a woman in her 20s, the confidence of a woman in her 30s, the experience of a woman in her 40s, and the grace of a woman in her 50s,” Hillary wrote in an email to Vogue, in which Abedin was profiled.

Doug Band

A former White House intern, Band has been with the Clintons for over a decade. He's Bill's right-hand man and closest aide as Number 42 manages his post-presidency philanthropy.

Capricia Marshall

Capricia Marshall is chief of protocol of the United States, which means she arranges visits for heads of state and makes sure ceremonial events run smoothly—a good person to have at a wedding.
