Former President Bill Clinton claims he and wife Hillary don’t talk about politics very often, even cutting each other off at times when the topic emerges.
Speaking during an appearance Monday night during the PBS NewsHour, Clinton said:
We’re not nearly as political as everybody thinks we are. We don’t sit around all the time talking about this. We swim in the late afternoon every day. And if either one of us even mentions a political topic we will stop the other one and just talk about the weather or whatever. We don’t talk about politics, politics as much as people think.
Ironically, Clinton’s remarks fit perfectly with Hillary’s current political strategy, which involves not seeming to want the presidency too much.
She has only slowly been reemerging publicly since ending her tenure as Secretary of State early this year and just gave her first major interview this week. She won’t say whether she will seek the presidency and aides are reportedly dismissive of questions from reporters about whether she plans to run.
