Barbara Bush Wants Hillary Clinton To Run For President In 2016

Barbara Bush Hillary Clinton 2016

Barbara Bush hopes Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. To be clear, we don’t mean George W. Bush’s wife but rather his daughter.

The younger Bush has a streak of political independence despite her Republican heritage. Bush has already voiced her support for same-sex marriage.

She also commented in 2010 that she was “glad” President Obama could pass a healthcare reform bill through Congress, reports CBS News.

Despite numerous rumors, and the apparent support of a former Republican president’s daughter, Clinton has remained up in the air about whether or not she could run for president.

And while she said she hopes the former first lady will run, Barbara Bush isn’t sure she would vote for Clinton. That would apparently all depend on who she would be running against.

Bush spoke about Clinton during an interview with People, which is set to hit newsstands on August 26. The New York Daily News notes that Barbara Bush has also partnered with the Clinton Global Initiative as part of her job as the president of Global Health Corps, a public health non-profit.

Bush, a Yale grad, also partnered with current First Lady Michelle Obama for her Let’s Move! anti-childhood obesity initiative. While speaking about her alliances. She commented, “We want results. We work with people doing great work.” And for George W. Bush’s doctor, that means crossing party lines.

While Hillary Clinton did come up in the conversation, Barbara Bush’s interview with People was more focused on her work with Global Health Corps. The group was launched by her in 2008 and works to recruit young professionals to work on global health issues, such as infant mortality and HIV/AIDS.

Along with Hillary Clinton, other potential 2016 presidential candidates include Bush’s uncle, Jeb Bush, Elizabeth Warren, and Bobby Jindal. But it will be a long time before we know who will actually run for president next.

Are you surprised to learn that Barbara Bush would consider voting for Hillary Clinton for president?

    I cant read anything you wrote. You should have decent grammar in order to vote. (P.S. Atleast when Bill left office the budget was balanced. And he didn't have 2 wars going at the expense of America's credit. The LAST thing this country needs is a Bush in office, or anyone like them for that matter.

    Ummmm — the older Barbara Bush is NOT George W's WIFE — she is his MOTHER and grandmother to the younger Barbara. Your writer has apparently forgotten former First Lady LAURA Bush. Wow.

    Am noting the error @ the start of the article, stating Barbara Bush, not Pres. George W. Bush's wife, but rather his daughter. His wife is Laura; his Mom & daughter are both Barbara. Now re-Hillary…I would NEVER, EVER vote for someone who has no character, no integrity, & who does not care about Americans, as reflected in her statement about Benghazi…"what does it matter?" That one statement alone reveals her ugly, uncaring, selfish heart.

    NO, I'M NOT SURPRISED. SHE IS TOO YOUNG TO REMEMBER VERY MUCH ABOUT ROUGH ECONOMIC TIMES AND I DOUBT THAT SHE HAS TO PAY HER OWN WAY. THESE PEOPLE ARE IMPRESSED VERY EASILY BY THE LIKES OF THE CLINTONS. SHE DOESN'T REMEMBER THE CLINTONS WHEN THEY WERE IN OFFICE.

    I can't believe she would even say something like that. Unless she wants her to poke fun of.
    I know some people that will talk others into doing something just so they can poke fun. If the USA voted her in then we will be damned. If we even make it to the year 2016.

    So, she is a left-leaning republican…the woman has lost her mind. She needs to do some in-depth, inbiased resesrch on her potential candidate…she will find things which will dosqualify her choice.

    Ha. And to be perfectly clear, they don't mean his mother, either. Or his grandmother, or Barbara Jo Bush of London, Ontario.
