Bill Clinton: Hillary Has No “Clear Idea” What Her 2016 Message Would Be

Despite being in politics for over 3 decades, spending 4 years as Secretary of State, and having run for president once before, Hillary Clinton still doesn’t have a “clear idea” what she would do as President and what her campaign message would be according to Bill Clinton.

In an interview with CNN, Bill Clinton indicated that Hillary doesn’t know what her message for a 2016 campaign would be and still needs time to develop it.

We’ve reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn’t run for office if you don’t have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that,” Clinton told CNN’s Anna Coren. “Now that the book is done, she wants time to think about that and work through it. I think so much of politics is background noise, and we don’t need the background noise anymore.”

Hillary’s 2008 campaign was widely panned for lacking a central message and fellow Democrat strategists like Obama pollster Joel Benenson have said that the early signs for 2016 indicate she’s making many of the same mistakes.
