Hillary Clinton: 'You Have to Be a Little Bit Crazy to Run for President'
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that a candidate had to be a little bit crazy to run for president, painting the job as one that "totally consumed" a candidate.
“Well you have to be a little bit crazy to run for president, let me just put it like that,” Clinton laughed during an interview with Gwen Ifill of PBS. “Because you have to be so totally immersed and so convinced that you can bring something to that office that your vision about what you can do to help Americans.”
Clinton cited her “life of service” as a reason why she might feel compelled to run.
“I also know that it’s a very hard job, and it’s a job that, you know, you have to be totally consumed by, and that’s kind of the definition of being a little bit crazy, I think,” she said.
