ABC News’ Eloise Harper Reports: In an interview with Essence Magazine, Hillary Clinton discusses her marriage to the former president.

"Oh, he’s so romantic," says the former first lady, "He’s always bringing me back things from his trips." 

Clinton also made rare remarks on the former (and aspiring) first couple’s marital troubles. 

"Now, obviously we’ve had challenges as everybody in the world knows," she told Essence. "But I never doubted that it was a marriage worth investing in even in the midst of those challenges, and I’m really happy that I made that decision."

Mrs. Clinton pointed out the Chanel watch made of white cubes Mr. Clinton bought her because it reminded him of teeth — and she was having dental surgery at the time. (ABC News’ Green Room Girl points out that this is likely the J12 – putting this gift in the range of $4,200 to $11,950 depending on whether or not Clinton sprung for diamond markers or the bezel).

Candidate Clinton also told the mag that her proudest moment is Chelsea and that her favorite show is "Grey’s Anatomy".

The interview appears in the November issue of Essence Magazine and tackles Clinton’s fight for the black vote in a Democratic field that includes Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.
