Bill Clinton: Hillary and I Don’t Talk Politics Much

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.

  1. Ah, yes, Bill Clinton. You still can’t believe half of the things that he says.

    The best quote ever about Bill Clinton was from (I believe) Senator Bob Kerry of Nebraka: “He’s an uncommonly good liar”.

  2. Oh, for pete’s sake, does anyone in the free world believe that they talk about the weather and not politics?
    It would be more credible if he said they really don’t talk to each other except to discuss the Mrs’ political future.

      Yes, I think they DO.

      Oh, wait, do you mean with each OTHER? Well, maybe not so much…

    • Bill and Hillary only have oral sex now – when they pass each other in the drive way, Hillary says “F*** You” and Bill says “F*** you right Back”!

  3. ha ha ha, that is funny. Like they ever talk about anything else, let alone do much talking at all, except where do I sign this paper or that one for our financial stuff.

  4. I call BS. John Bolton made an interesting, off hand comment about Hillary last night on Red Eye — something to the effect how sad it was that politics was her (presumably their whole) life– rather than develop outside interests, positions, etc. they just keep coming back to the political well.

  5. There was a reason she was most traveled Secretary of State. That was Bill’s demand supporting Obama’s Presidency. Keep her out the country………..

  6. They don’t talk about politics? Everything about the two of them is so contrived, people know it — I just hope the two of them stop trying to worm themselves into our lives again. We need a miracle for that. We’ve all had enough of the Clintons — what makes Hillary qualify for the Presidency? Why, because the communist socialist party has no one else? Because she was married to a President who was with another woman for 12 years and then lucky for Hillary, along came Bill’s presidency and he had to drop the Flowers woman! Hillary stayed with Bill for the power and I guess he feels he owes her the Presidency now. Obama using him to sell health care? Oh people so they can all control the entire American population through healthcare and the IRS? The low IQ’s will never be able to figure this out, we will all be communists and there is no one to save us. We need a miracle for them to know who the enemy of the United States really is, too dumb. All we have in the government is a bunch of liars and manipulators and not people in who truly love their country. Thats all gone now, its all smoke and mirrors and tricks and fake votes.
