Mitt Romney is better than he was in 2008, Jon Huntsman is likable and Michele Bachman is a serious contender. But President Barack Obama will still get re-elected next year, says former President Bill Clinton.
According to Politico
, Clinton spoke about some of the Republican
presidential contenders and the 2012 election at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado.
“I like the governors: I like Huntsman and Romney. Romney’s a much better candidate than he was last time, because he’s not apologizing for signing the healthcare bill. ... Huntsman hasn’t said what he’s for yet, but I just kinda like him. He looks authentic – he looks like a real guy. I mean, a real human being. I like his family, I like his kind of iconoclastic way. And he was a pretty good governor. And he wasn’t a right-wing ideologue."
As for Bachmann, Clinton admitted that she's "been a better candidate than I thought she’d be, and I don’t agree with her on nearly anything. But she’s got a very compelling personal story, and she gotta lot of juice, and she turns [on] a lot of those anti-government crowd.”
But, Clinton believes, none of that will matter on Election Day 2012, because he's sure Obama will be victorious.
