Hillary Clinton offered some interesting insight into her thinking about what it’s like being president, Politico reports.
Said Clinton: “I spent an hour with the president yesterday, going over a lot of different issues. And I was thinking, sitting there in the Oval Office talking, that I’ve known a lot of presidents over the course of the last many decades … And it is such a hard job … It is such a challenging job. And you need people, starting in your family — but going to your friends, beyond a larger circle — who will really be there for you and continue to treat you like a human being.”
She continued: “Because you can easily lose touch with what’s real, what’s authentic, who you were before you were sworn in to office … Whether it’s a man or a woman, the support system is absolutely critical. It used to be, in years past, presidents like the Roosevelts, or Harry Truman … they would go away, they would go to their ranch or their home or, in Harry Truman’s case, he’d get on the presidential yacht and he’d sail down to Key West. … They wanted to breathe, they wanted to think.”Save to Favorites
