After her embarrassing loss in November, Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton flack and the current Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, is now saying Hillary Clinton and hubby Bill are finally done with politics.
“I think so, sure. I don’t think Hillary has any interest in running again,” McAuliffe said during an “ask the governor” interview on WTOP, according to the Washington Post.
McAuliffe, who was a major Clinton fundraiser for years and also once served as the Chairman of the Democrat National Committee during the Bush era, said that the past campaign was devastating for the Clintons.
“I mean, this is hard on anybody… can you imagine having to go through this?” he said. “I’ve had many conversations with the Clinton family. We’re friends. It’s hard, very tough. I think on Election Day everybody felt pretty good. I think the Trump campaign thought they were gonna lose. And you know, this is what happens in elections.”
The Virginia Governor did backtrack a bit, though, saying, “I’ll let her speak for herself. I haven’t asked her that. I think the president’s [Bill Clinton] probably going to go back, working on all the good deeds he’s done before in helping people around the globe. You know, there are elections. We’ve got to move forward. As governor of Virginia, I’ve got to move forward.”
