Hillary Clinton Has Some Advice for the Democrats Running for President

By Rhine Irving | April 15, 2019 | Culture

At a moderated talk at this weekend's Women in the World Summit, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton revealed her advice for democrats to CNN's Fareed Zakaria.


When asked by Zakaria about how the current pool of 18 democratic candidates should prepare for a campaign against president Donald Trump, Clinton weighed in with some advice.

"I think you really have to do two things simultaneously and it's challenging. You do have to present what you want to do: What is your vision? What is your hope for our country? How do you see the future? What are you going to propose that will make a difference in the lives of Americans and maintain the values, the ideals of America in a very complex world? So you bear that responsibility." said Clinton to a crowded room of attendees at the summit.

"At the same time, you have to be able to counter and ignore, where possible and respond where necessary to the diversion and distraction that we see, unfortunately, working by the current incumbent in the White House and so you have to do that balancing act and I think that we have excellent candidates who are demonstrating their ability to do that."

Clinton, however, did not weigh in on who she was throwing her support behind, but has ruled out her own presidential campaign.
