Bill Clinton On Hillary 2016: ‘I Don’t Think She Plans To Do It,’ But ‘Whatever She Decides’ I’ll Support
It’s been a little while since the Hillary 2016 chatter started up again, so almost makes sense that President Bill Clinton was asked about his wife’s political prospects in an interview with Luke Russert, which ran on Monday’s The Daily Rundown. Clinton mostly said supportive things about her (I’m happy if she’s happy), and gave a rather noncommittal response, saying he really doesn’t know what 2016 will bring.
Clinton responded to the possibility we’ve all been talking about since 2008:
You know, it’s up to her, really. I don’t think she plans to do it, and I think that — you will understand this in 30 years or so — but Hillary’s worked really hard for 20 years. And it’s just been a constant, relentless thing. She wants to come home, get a little rest, do some other things. And she thinks she will — she’s told you and everybody else — that she thinks she’ll probably never want to run for office again.
Relating his own political experience, he added, “But, I’ve been there, I know what happens when you go through this decompression, after years of relentless, high-pressure activity. And I just think she needs to rest up, do some things she cares about, and whatever she decides to do, I’ll support.”
Chuck Todd and Russert concluded the door’s not shut on the 2016 run just yet. Let the speculation continue.
