Rahm Emanuel Dodges on Whether Hillary Clinton Should Run Again

The Chicago mayor and former chief of staff to President Obama wouldn’t say whether another run from Clinton would be good for Democrats.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, formerly chief of staff to President Obama, wouldn’t say on Sunday whether he will support a third presidential run from Hillary Clinton.

“We’re not even first through the midterm election. She hasn’t even declared for me to say that,” he said.

“That’s the question,” CNN’s Dana Bash interjected. “Do you think she should?”

“It’s not a good question,” Emanuel responded.

Bash interrupted again, pointing out that Clinton’s recent speeches sound like those of a political candidate.

“I happen to love Hillary and I think she’s full of energy and I happen to think there’s a lot of between now and the presidential election,” Emanuel said, leaving the decision up to Clinton.
