Nancy Pelosi has an idea on who should run for president for the Democrats in 2016: Hillary Clinton.
The House Minority Leader expressed interest in the idea during an interview with PBS‘s Charlie Rose, saying it would be “exciting” and that Clinton has been a “magnificent” Secretary of State under President Barack Obama.
However, Pelosi did say she had no knowledge of a plan by Clinton to run for president. Additionally, Clinton has said that her current position would be her last in public office, though Bill Clinton seemed to leave open the possibility that she might change her mind, saying he would be happy no matter what she did, either with the Clinton Foundation or a presidential run.
What do you think? Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016, or should she leave the realm of politics. Let us know what you think at email@example.com.
