Harry Reid is already calling himself a “cheerleader” for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid. He is also predicting she will likely enjoy a more successful presidency than her husband.
“I think that they’re a pretty good team, but she’ll handle things probably even better than he did,” Reid said yesterday after after listing the former president’s accomplishments in an interview with the PBS Newshour. The Senate majority leader, asked if his comments were sincere, did not back down. “Oh yeah,” he said.
Reid, who endorsed then-Senator Obama over Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary, now claims to the former secretary of state’s most enthusiastic supporter. “Hillary Clinton may have a bigger fan than Harry Reid, I just don’t know who it would be.”
