Joe Biden among several awaiting Hillary Clinton’s decision on presidential race
Vice President weighing a run with or without Hillary in 2016
Will she or won’t she? Vice President Joe Biden is among several waiting for Hillary Clinton to make up her mind.
That’s the top question when it comes to discussion of Hillary Clinton, the recently retired secretary of state who would assume the new role of Democratic presidential front-runner for 2016...if she decides to run.
However, the former New York senator and two-term first lady has given no clear indication of her future political intentions, which has put the White House aspirations of other possible Democratic contenders on hold.
Clinton, according to a piece in the New York Times, still employs a staff of six in a small office in Washington, D.C. The office is known as a “transitional” one, and a group of hardcore supporters has already started a political action committee called Ready for Hillary, encouraging a 2016 run.
Though pundits are looking for any kind of signal that might give a clue about her intentions, her long-time spokesman says Clinton simply hasn’t made up her mind.
“There’s this kind of, ‘I’m telling you a secret that she told me secretly,’ but there’s no secret to tell,” said Philippe Reines. “Everyone’s gotten way ahead of themselves, and most importantly, they have gotten way ahead of her.”
Currently, Clinton is preparing to join the public speaking circuit, where her paid speeches are expected to earn her six-figure deals. She’s also working on a book about her time in the State Department, and enjoying a break from the hectic travel schedule she undertook while acting as President Obama’s secretary of state.
Though Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, is said to support another run at the White House by his wife, others just want her to make a decision one way or another.
Vice President Joe Biden’s longtime aide Joe Slade White said her decision would affect Biden’s decision about a possible run. “Of course it would,” he said. [But], “that doesn’t mean it would make him not do it.”
“I’ve talked to a number of donors who are willing to write whatever they’re permitted to write to a presidential campaign, and certainly to write very big money to any sort of super PAC that would be supportive of her,” said Harold M. Ickes, a senior adviser to Clinton’s 2008 campaign. “They’re just saying to me, ‘Whenever she’s ready, we’re ready.’ ”
Right now, she’s preparing for her first paid speech before the National Multi Housing Council in Dallas on April 24. Two weeks ago she also publicly stated her support for gay marriage for the first time, indicating that she hasn’t closed the door on a future political run.
