WASHINGTON (AP) - It was once a tense rivalry, but now the relationship between President Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton has evolved into a genuine political and policy partnership.

Both sides have a strong incentive in making the alliance work, especially in an election year.

For Obama, Bill Clinton is a fundraising juggernaut, a powerful reminder to voters that a Democrat ran the White House the last time the economy was thriving.

For the spotlight-loving former president, stronger ties with the White House and campaign headquarters mean he gets a hand in shaping the future of the party he led for nearly a decade.

On Sunday evening in northern Virginia, the current and former president plan to make the first of three joint appearances at fundraisers for Obama's campaign.
