Bill Clinton 'would be happy' if Hillary opts to run for presidency in 2016

Washington, Tue, 03 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 3 (ANI): Former US President Bill Clinton has said that he would be 'happy' if his wife Hillary decided to run for the presidency in 2016.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was defeated for the Democratic nomination by President Obama in 2008, has repeatedly said she does not intend to seek office again, but rumors of a 2016 run are never far from the surface.

"I believe that she's being absolutely honest with you when she says she doesn't think she'll go back into politics," Fox News quoted Clinton, as saying.

"But if she comes home, and we do this foundation stuff for the rest of our lives, I'll be happy, if she changes her mind and decides to run, I'll be happy," he added.

Clinton insisted the decision was 'entirely up to her.'

According to the report, he also weighed in on the increasingly bitter race for the Republican nomination to go up against Barack Obama in the fall, but rejected comparisons between front-runner Mitt Romney and himself.

Clinton faced high unfavorable ratings during his first presidential bid, but was eventually able to turn it around to beat President George H.W. Bush.

When asked whether Romney could shake off his own unfavorability, Clinton said 'I doubt it.'

"Romney has a different challenge than I did," the report quoted Clinton, as saying.

"Even though he had a bruising primary and higher negatives, and I did, too. Mine was just one long character attack. It was a personal attack on me. You know, 'You shouldn't have this guy be President," he added. (ANI)
