Speculation about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political future is a parlor game that never seems to end. Will she run for president in 2016? Or, as she’s said dozens of times, she’s through with politics and plans to never run for office again.
However, the speculation got a shot in the arm when Bill Clinton weighed in on the subject during an appearance on Face the Nation.
Clinton said told CBS’s Bob Schieffer, “I doesn’t know” whether Hillary will run for president in 2016 adding that she wants to take some time off and regroup after she wraps up her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat in 2012.
“You know she’s worked hard for 20 years. We had eight years in the White House then she ran for the Senate, she served in New York for eight years then immediately became the Secretary of State, and she’s tired. She’s really worked hard. I think she’s done a fabulous job. I’m very proud of her. But she wants to take some time off, kind of regroup. Write a book. I hope we’ll be working together.”
I know playing the ‘Hillary Game’ is fun and irresistible but, I have an idea? Let’s get President Obama reelected in 44 days. Then, we can set our sights on 2016.
