Hillary Clinton Vice President?
Hillary Clinton said she would not consider being Michael Bloomberg’s vice presidential candidate should the former New York City mayor win the Democratic Party’s nomination.
“Oh, no. I’m just waiting and watching as this plays out. I will support whoever the nominee is because I think, for all the reasons you can imagine, and here in Puerto Rico there are many, we need to have a new president for our country,” the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said at a Clinton Global Initiative event in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Tuesday.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a moderator’s question about a report by Matt Drudge claiming Bloomberg, 78, was considering asking Clinton, 72, to join his presidential ticket.
On Saturday, Drudge posted a report on his site that sources close to the billionaire’s team said he was considering offering Clinton the slot after polling suggested the combo would go over well with voters.
Earlier this month, Clinton said she wouldn’t be running for president a third time but appeared open to serving on another candidate’s ticket.
“I never say never, because I do believe in serving my country, but it’s not going to happen,” Clinton told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
