On the campaign trail, President Bill Clinton has defended Hillary's role on the Wal-Mart board even though he said she knew there was no chance of changing the company's stance on unions.

In a written statement, Sen. Clinton's spokesperson said, "As President she will fight alongside labor to promote the economic growth of America's middle class." He said Clinton believes Wal-Mart workers should have the right to unionize and bargain collectively.

Clinton's Senate campaign also returned a $5,000 contribution from a Wal-Mart Political Action Committee, although ABCNews.com found another $20,000 from Wal-Mart executives and lobbyists. Her spokesperson said, "There is no basis to return" the money. (ABC News)
