Coverage to provide balance for Hillary Clinton

I was wondering whether, in the short term, editors could consider making sure that coverage is given to Hillary Clinton in cases in which a relevant news story comes up. This is in relation to a discussion at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Hillary_Clinton#An enlisting of Hillary? in which it is observed that Hillary is currently disadvantaged in getting links to her Wikipedia page as, according to search results on many versions of google, a search on a term such as "clinton" will typically produce:

Bill Clinton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Clinton Wikipedia
William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton (born William Jefferson Blythe III; August 19, 1946) is an American politician who served as the 42nd President of the United ...
‎Hillary Clinton - ‎Chelsea Clinton - ‎Impeachment of Bill Clinton - ‎Roger Clinton, Jr.

Hillary's article isn't provided with a separate google listing but is considered to be a sub article to Bill.

Btw I was the en Wikipedia editor to propose the move Hillary Rodham Clinton → Hillary Clinton and I'm mentioning this in a genuine consideration of restoring balance. I don't see why she should now be disadvantaged just because she had previously chosen to take a supportive roll. Thanks. GregKaye (talk) 16:21, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
