Bill Clinton: Hillary 'Ablest Person in My Generation'

By Jim Meyers and Christopher Ruddy   |   Tuesday, 20 Sep 2011 08:04 PM

Hillary Clinton is the “ablest person in my generation,” former President Bill Clinton tells Newsmax — but he won’t speculate on the likelihood of Hillary running for the White House in 2016.

A recent poll found that Hillary is the most favored political figure on the scene today. Asked about her 2016 presidential prospects, Bill says: “You’ll have to ask her.

“But when we were kids and I met her and we started our now 40-year-plus conversation — I met her 41 years ago this last spring — pretty quick I decided that she was the ablest person in my generation. And nothing has happened in those 41 years to change my opinion.

“I may have been a better politician, at least on the first go-round, but I never met anybody I thought had a better combination of mind and heart.

“If she wants to come home, I’ll be happy. If she wants to serve, I’ll be happy. But she has to decide that. All I know is I’m glad that she’s serving now.”
