Bill Clinton: Chelsea would be a better president ‘over the long run’


Former President Bill Clinton thinks his wife would be a better president right now but in the long term, it’s all about his daughter Chelsea.

Clinton was responding to a question from CNN’s Piers Morgan about who would be the better President, Hillary or Chelsea.

“Day after tomorrow, my wife because she’s had more experience. Over the long run, Chelsea. She knows more than we do about everything,” Clinton said.

“I feel like I’m going to school every day when we have conversations.”

The full interview will air tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live.”

Chelsea Clinton has taken up a place at the heart of her family’s foundation and not unlike her mother’s playbook, has declined to give a definitive answer about any future political aspirations while still feeding into continuing media speculation.

As for the elder Clintons, President Barack Obama’s informal “secretary of explaining stuff” once again deflected on another White House run by Hillary Clinton, who has nevertheless taken significant steps towards a 2016 run.

When asked about Hillary Clinton’s seeming abundance of energy and political ideas after stepping down as Secretary of State and if he could put America out of its misery waiting for an announcement, Clinton said: “No. But, it should scream to you something else: real life is a healthier existence than politics.”
