Hilary still has a full plate as Senator, and Bill will always be a hero, Michael Waldman says.
Topic: The Future of Bill and Hillary Clinton
Michael Waldman: Well she’s my Senator, so I’m pretty sure she’s going to be busy doing that. It’s quite interesting. I mean she really created a role for herself in the country and in the country’s politics that surpassed anything she had been able to do before. I mean she ran a very strong race, and a lot of people commented that her personal strength as a candidate surpassed her campaign. And so I think she’s got a major voice in the country, most likely in the senate going forward, but she has now made herself one of the giants in American politics. Bill Clinton has a great deal of residual affection for him. I think that there was a strong feeling that he was a very, very effective president. I’m sure there are some bruised feelings from the primary fight, but I bet those will heal pretty quickly, would be my guess.
