Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: I May Not Run For Potus Because Job Too Difficult
Posted on 07/18/2014 1:59:18 PM PDT by bkopto
Hillary Clinton said she may not run for president because the modern American presidency may just be too tough of a job.
Acknowledging to PBS's Charlie Rose that America's president must be both the head of state and government, Clinton said the job of being president "has only gotten harder" and it is now an "all-consuming commitment."
She said the president has to do "all of the symbolic and ritualistic aspects" of the job in addition to the "hard work of politicking, lobbying, governing, operating." She said that the "job has gotten more difficult" because all those roles, including dealing with Congress to pass legislation, are "all in one person."
"You've got to get the money from the Congress to really improve what you're doing, personnel policies, and all the rest," Clinton said. "So the job is as challenging as it's always been, but I would say almost to a degree of amplification that's hard to imagine."
Clinton said the presidency has gotten "bigger and even more difficult" in the modern media environment and added that she knew "so much about the job and how hard it is."

This means she’s running.
Well, maybe if the government was restricted to its original Constitutional limitations, the job of President wouldn’t be IMPOSSIBLE.
I can see where being responsible for every minor aspect of everybody’s life and managing society would be a bit challenging.
She isn’t running, she just loves the attention.
Bill will make her run.
The only sane group IMO is the Tea party-types.
So the question is can the Tea Party-type candidate have enough influence to prevail in 2016?
Who's out there besides Cruz and Paul?
The woman hit her peter principle in Rhodes Law Firm.
Sounds like she does not play golf... and has no desire to travel for campaign funds to cover her agenda.
Sounds like she doesn’t want to make any more hard choices.
it’s no place for millionaire alynskite liars with lecherous husbands and no experience.. we already have one and her name is Michelle.
Not for someone who doesn’t have brain damage. Like Hillary.
Hillary does not have brain damage. She said so. So how can it be too difficult for someone like her who doesn’t have brain damage?
She’ll probably raise more money and then drop out and keep as much of the money as possible.
She’s also a congenital liar. Everything she says is a lie.
Presidentin’ is haaaard. So is baking cookies.
Err, isn't this what the Vice-President should do if he's not too big a doofus?
Gee, I thought the primary responsibilities of the Office were as per the Oath, not shaking down Congress for $$$ ....
What a whiny incompetent. What has she ever accomplished except somehow killing Vince Foster, losing billing records for years, losing $6,000,000,000.00 while secretary of state (according to the IG) and harassing women who her “husband” diddled? Maybe if she weren’t an alcoholic and grossly obese she could handle it.
Sounds like her end game will be that Bill and her can get the job done due to their dual experience.
If she runs and wins, she’ll have a tougher time maintaining residences separate from her “spouse”. Which means she’ll have the horn dog around most of the time, except of course when he’s working on a little on the side.
That’d be enough to drive a woman to drink - oh, wait, we’ve already arrived there.
Yes, I was going to say the same thing.
Sounds like she is taking a jab at Obama.
Meme: Hillary Clinton is an old, stumbling drunk.
This is what they said after Carter. POTUS is too big for one man
And then came along The Big Boss Man Ronald Reagan who made it almost look easy
sounds way too hard
I'll go bake cookies.
Just read Newsmax poll and Ted Cruz crushed it with about twice as many votes as anyone else polled
Run Ted Run
She’s NOT a stumbling drunk. She’s a falling down drunk. How else would she have a concussion?
Meme: Hillary Clinton is an old, stumbling drunk.
Yep. And Jack Daniels is the only male in her life.
She has to run. The ‘rats don’t have anyone else.
And don’t say “Biden”. Even they know he’s a joke.
As opposed to back in Lincoln's day when it was much easier. Can we please call this horse' s ass the horse's ass she is, and not the smartest woman in the world?
No it isn't -- just look at Obama: Golf, fund-raising and vacation. A less than part-time job for that slacker.
But she ain’t no ways tarred.
She has to run. The rats dont have anyone else.
Andrew Cuomo, IMO.
Either she thinks being President is part-time work, or she is suggesting Obama is a part-timer. Regardless, what a stupid thing to say...hell yes being the leader of the free world should be an all consuming commitment.
Right. Notice she doesn’t mention that she’ll handle domestic and Bill will handle international. Just like the co-presidency they held before.
Just like Barry, lie about everything.
Either she thinks being President is part-time work, or she is suggesting Obama is a part-timer.
She probably anticipates that by the time she gets in there, Obama will have the dictatorship in place so she will only need to dictate her wishes.
She also suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, like O’Sunni.
LOL. She needs to be tarred and feathered.
Ahh ain’t in no ways tard.
Yes, Willy will love being back in the WH and on AF1, and especially being the first “First Gentleman”. With FGOTUS office interns.
(I am vomiting in my mouth a little.)
She wants the sheeple to beg her.
“But she aint no ways tarred.”
I LOL’d for real at this.
Is this a John Semmens satire piece.
She just gave whoever runs against her a lot of material.
Once past Hillary’s puffed up, undeserved resume, past all her sleazy dealings, and criminal behavior, past her incompetence and intellectual cesspool, Hillary is quite inadequate for any meaningful task. Her’s is a story about how an ugly, lazy, waddling dingbat rode her way to political power on her lying husband’s coattails, only to be outdone by a media generated black guy who is even more incapable of handling the job of president than she is.
But she does measure up to the high standards of Democrats and the Republican left.
People lacking in leadership skills frequently talk about how difficult and how complicated a leadership position is. During the Carter administration, the excuse was often made that the job was too much for one man and some even suggested that we needed a chief executive for foreign affairs and another for domestic affairs. Miraculously, when Reagan became president, the job became much more manageable and, for the most part has remained so until the need to excuse our current president’s failure. Obviously, Hillary considers her leadership skill in the same league as Carter and Obama and, on that, I would have to agree with her.
She may have to cut back to being drunk only 3 nights a week...
