Co-host of The View, Nicole Wallace, who served as White House Communications Director during the George W. Bush Administration, said Wednesday she was “a huge fan of the idea” of Hillary Clinton running for president and hoped it would “inspire” the Republican Party to nominate a “really great” candidate in 2016.
Clinton is the decisive favorite for Democrats in 2016.
Wallace appeared with Wendy Williams on Wendy Wednesday.
Williams: Now do you think that Hillary will run for president?
Wallace: Well, I think it’s so interesting that this question comes after Monica, because I do think Hillary will run. I’m a huge fan of the idea of a Hillary Clinton candidacy. I’m really interested in seeing how she handles the gender issue because I think she’s learned a lot since last time. But I think politics is the ultimate… See this is when my political nerd comes out.
Wallace: Sexism. But it’s the ultimate reality show, right? Anything can happen, and a lot of Democratic women that I know want to rehash some of this Lewinsky stuff. They still have questions about how she could have stood by Bill during that. And so I don’t as a Republican…
Williams: I’m nosy, I don’t even care.
Wallace: Well, I don’t think they care about infidelity, but I think it’s an interesting confluence, right? So Monica Lewinsky’s becoming public again, Hillary Clinton’s going to run again after her unsuccessful bid eight years ago. I think Hillary will be an incredibly strong candidate and I think it will be really, really…Hopefully it will inspire my party to put up someone really great.
