Hillary Clinton for 2020 ‘not a good question,’ says Rahm Emanuel
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) on Sunday said he doesn’t think asking whether Hillary Clinton should run for the White House in 2020 is a “good question.”
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Emanuel hedged when pressed to answer whether he thinks Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, running for office again would be good for the party.
“She has to decide whether that’s in her heart,” he eventually said.
“Well look, you’re asking something that we’re not even through the midterm election. She hasn’t even declared,” Emanuel said when first asked.
“I know, but I asked the question. Do you think she should,” CNN’s Dana Bash responded.
“Well it’s not — I love you. It’s not a good question, OK,” he said.
“Why not?” Bash asked.
“It’s not a good question,” he reiterated.
When pressed further, Emanuel said he happens to “love” Clinton, adding that he thinks she’s “full of energy.”
“We have a lot of time between now and the presidential election of 2020,” he said.
