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 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 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)
