Bill Clinton: Hillary to Play ‘Major Role’ After She Leaves Obama Administration

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.

Who will the CDS brigades hate when they’re gone?

    Come on, either put a sarong on Hillary or make Bill’s shorts shorter.
    Fair is fair.

    They look great in that picture! As for who will the CDSers hate after Hillary is out of public service? Palin, of course.

    barney frank is not seeking election in 2012.

    The Palin family will be next in line for all the hate. They started when she ran for vice president and it has not stopped. She makes them crazy when she speaks because the she speaks for the every day person in this country.

    I said this on another blog but I think she will become the next UN Secretary General.

    one good reason we need to have more schools like the Williamson trade school in this country.
    It is a 4 year school that teaches trades and you CAN get a job when you graduate.

      In my day, high school circa 60’s, those kids who couldn’t cut the “college track” were sent to such “occupational” schools and tagged as “losers”.

      Flash forward almost 50 years, those kids now have their own/retired from businesses in the service industry like beauticians, mechanics, plumbers, medical techs, therapists, et al.

        I remember talking to a Senator’s aide and him having a fit because railroaders made more money then his college educated friend.
        my reply to him was
        It is not my fault your friend had a bad guidance counselor.

    Speaking of Post-Clinton America:

    The Future of the Obama Coalition
    By THOMAS B. EDSALL

    For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.

    All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.

    It is instructive to trace the evolution of a political strategy based on securing this coalition in the writings and comments, over time, of such Democratic analysts as Stanley Greenberg and Ruy Teixeira. Both men were initially determined to win back the white working-class majority, but both currently advocate a revised Democratic alliance in which whites without college degrees are effectively replaced by well-educated socially liberal whites in alliance with the growing ranks of less affluent minority voters, especially Hispanics.

      So out with the working class, and by the way, union members, and in with the “creative class” who aren’t very creative as it turns out. Best of luck with that. I’d start working on a plan B if I were you. And in reality, they’re losing a lot of the college educated vote among those with an actual brain and can think. Though admittedly that may be a small subset of the college educated vote.

      And by the way, I’m not sure they can count on the AA or latino vote in the long run either. Funny thing about how people eventually notice the Dems aren’t on their side. Of course the GOP shouldn’t get excited, it’s not like they will get that vote either.

      Time sure is ripe for a third party. Perhaps one that is actually for the vast majority of the working class, including both college educated and non college educated working class. Neither party is for that group. And I think they’ve noticed.

      • DandyTiger says:

        Sadly I think a last gasp of the pathetic “creative class” and their Obama infatuation can be seen in the OWS efforts. Pretty much everyone I know heavily into it are super Obama supporters, and among them and the ones they know in OWS it’s sort of understood that they’re part of the “creative class” progressives that are on the side of Obama. They even joke about how they’re keeping a low political profile, but it’s pretty well know. Anyway, I think the way they’re failing is indicative of how that whole OFA movement is going.

        Let this new Dem party OFA/OWS catastrophe fail miserably. Then we can perhaps pick up the pieces. But probably better, just form a new party. Neither of the current ones are on your side. They’re not on America’s side. They’re on the side of Goldman Sachs.

    Ya know, the saddest part about post-Clinton America is that ObamaNation will never understand what they threw away and the extent of the damage they, with their malevolent and misogynistic disinformation campaign (CDS/PDS), have done. They really are that hateful and that stupid. (sigh)

      Well, I am making sure all the dolts in my family and circle of friends fully understand what they did.

      I like rubbing their noses in it! I try to be subtle, like reminding them that the BUSH tax cuts for the rich was bargained away by Obama for really no reason.

      Most don’t get it. They didn’t even know that there was a window. An expiration date on it. ( They really are dolts)…but I patiently explain that one year ago, Obama stopped the Bush Tax Cuts for Rich from expiring.

      I will keep at this until a light bulb goes on…it may be hopeless.
