Celebrating the diversity of the Democratic presidential primary field for 2020, former candidate Hillary Clinton hopes the ultimate candidate can stand against the "diversion and distraction" of the White House.
"I am absolutely delighted to see this incredibly diverse field, and especially to have more than one woman running for president of the United States," Clinton told the 10th annual Women in the World summit Friday, per the Hill.
The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate declined to endorse any lawmaker, but did give them advice in campaigning to run against President Donald Trump.
"You do have to present what you want to do – what is your vision?" Clinton said.
". . . At the same time, you must be able to counter and ignore where possible, respond where necessary, to the diversion and distraction that we see, unfortunately, working by the current incumbent in the White House.
"While the candidates are doing the best job they can, I hope that people, voters, citizens are thinking about what they can do to make sure that, you know, we live up to our best selves and that we elect someone who will reflect our positive self and not our negative and will not appeal to the lowest common denominator, but try to lift us up and move us with confidence and optimism into the future."
