Former President Bill Clinton revealed in an exclusive Newsmax.TV interview released this weekend that he has discussed with his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her plans after she leaves the Obama administration.
Mrs. Clinton has stated publicly that she plans to step down at the end of President Barack Obama’s first term, even if he wins re-election in 2012. Will she seek out a new role in public life or remain just a private citizen?
Clinton told Newsmax that he has discussed the matter with her “a little bit.”
“I think she wants — and she has said publicly — to continue a lot of the work that she’s done, she did as a private citizen, as first lady, as senator and as secretary of state,” Clinton said.
“Around the world, she’s done an enormous amount of good in, you now, the so-called soft power areas, empowering women and girls, helping them, giving them access to capital, helping them make a living, promoting better healthcare practices.”
The former president added: “I think she will have a major role to play in the nongovernmental world. That’s what she plans to do, and I think she’ll do it well.”
When Hillary retires from her position as Secretary of State it will be the first time in two decades that neither Bill nor Hillary holds an official position in Washington.
