Hey, Bill Clinton — we’ll call you if we need you!
Hillary Clinton is working hard on her run to the White House, and if she actually does win in November, the question many people are asking is, well, what would the current president do with a former president by her side?
The answer is… not as much as you’d think!
During Sunday night’s Democratic presidential debate, the former Secretary of State was asked about what her husband’s role might be in advising her in office.
“It’ll start at the kitchen table and we’ll see where it goes from there.”
The former Senator did get serious, though, telling moderators:
“I’m going to have the very best advisers that I can possibly have. And when it comes to the economy and what was accomplished under my husband’s leadership in the ’90s, especially when it came to raising incomes for everybody and lifting people out of poverty more than any time in history, you bet I’m going to ask for his ideas, I’m going to ask for his advice, and I’m going to use him as a goodwill emissary to go around the country and find the best ideas we’ve got.
“Because I do believe ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ as he said ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ everything that’s wrong with America, is solved somewhere in America. We just have to do more of it and reach out especially into poor communities and communities of color to give people their own chance to get ahead.”
Well there you go!
Something tells us Bill wouldn’t be too bad in an advisor role.
But then again, he probably also wouldn’t do that badly at the kitchen table, either! Ha!!
