Bill Clinton: I don't know whether Hillary will run

Source: San Jose Mercury News

Don't bother asking Bill Clinton if his wife is going to run for president in 2016.

"If I did know, I wouldn't tell you," he said Wednesday, fielding the first of many questions from a packed audience at De Anza College's Flint Center during the first of a three-night stand as part of the 45th Annual Celebrity Forum Speakers Series.

But seriously, he said: He doesn't know. It's been a tough 20 years for Hillary Clinton, he said: eight years as first lady, then a stint as a U.S. senator before a hard-fought 2008 presidential primary campaign -- and now four years as U.S. secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

"She's in great shape; she has unbelievable stamina," but she must rest up before choosing her course, he said, noting he told her before they married that she was "the most gifted person in public service in my generation." And. he said, he still believes it today.

3. Bill Clinton knows what he's talking about.

"She's in great shape; she has unbelievable stamina," but she must rest up before choosing her course, he said, noting he told her before they married that she was "the most gifted person in public service in my generation." And. he said, he still believes it today.


And I agree with Bill. Hillary is amazing. I will work to support her.

6. ?

Can we please move on from this? The election is a month old and we're already planning a (the wrong) ticket for '16?

8. I don't know who is the right ticket at this point

But I'd like to see people help Obama get some of the things passed we need to. I guess jumping on the next bandwagon is a higher priority
