Hillary Clinton Pelosi
Hillary Clinton Pelosi, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “our shot” to win the White House in 2016.
“Why wouldn’t she run? She’s a magnificent secretary of state,” Pelosi told the San Francisco Chronicle in an interview published Sunday, when asked about a potential Clinton campaign.
“She’s our shot” in 2016, she added.
The Chronicle interview is not the first time Pelosi has called for Clinton to make another run for the White House.
“I do think the secretary should entertain the thought of running in 2016,” Pelosi said in April during an appearance at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. “Hasn’t she been a magnificent secretary of state?”
During the San Francisco Chronicle interview, Pelosi also defended President Barack Obama against former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, who said the president has “lost his mojo” on the campaign trail. (Syracuse)
