George W. Bush's Daughter: Hillary Should Run

Thursday, 15 Aug 2013 11:44 PM

By Matthew Auerbach

Hillary Clinton has received some encouragement for a 2016 Presidential run from an unexpected source: President George W. Bush’s daughter Barbara, Politico reports.

In an upcoming interview with People magazine, the 31-year old Bush called Clinton “unbelievably accomplished” and said she wants to see the former secretary of state declare her candidacy.

Although she’s in favor of Clinton mounting a campaign, Bush did not go so far as to say she would cast a vote for her.

“I don’t know who she’d be running against,” said Bush, who is politically unaffiliated but has thrown her support behind gay marriage.

Bush’s thoughts on a potential presidential run by Clinton were a sidebar in an interview done mostly to promote her work as the CEO of the nonprofit Global Health Corps., through which she has struck up partnerships with the Clinton Health Access Initiative and Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign.

“We want results,” Bush said.

“We work with people doing great work.”

Two subjects Bush stayed away from: a possible run for the White House by her uncle, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and her dad’s recent heart surgery.

The article will appear in the Aug. 26 issue of People magazine.
