Tanden: Clinton Won’t ‘Ever Run For Office Again’

A member of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle predicted Sunday that November’s election loser will never again seek the presidency or any other political position.

When CNN’s Jake Tapper cited reports that the former secretary of state was considering a campaign for mayor of New York City, Clinton friend Neera Tanden responded: “I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she's been focused on her whole life, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years. But I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again.”

CNN noted that Tanden is the director of the Center for American Progress, which the news network described as a “liberal think tank.” She sought to dispel the rumor that Clinton is plotting a bid to unseat NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio in the Democratic primary this November. “I don’t expect her to run for this and I don’t expect her to run for other office,” Tanden said. “I think her job is to -- what she’s thinking about right now is how to help those kids and families as she has her whole life.”

Errol Louis of “Inside City Hall” wrote in an op-ed for CNN that “nobody in her right mind -- certainly nobody as familiar with the workings of government and politics as Clinton -- would lightly take on the headaches of the nation’s largest city for such nakedly political reasons.”

New York state voters twice elected Clinton to the U.S. Senate. She later headed the State Department during President Obama’s first term.
