John Bolton Warns Hillary Would Be a Worse President than Biden Because She Is Smarter On Hugh Hewitt's radio show on Tuesday, for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton weighed the potential presidencies of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, arguing a Clinton presidency would be worse for the country. "I think Hillary Clinton would be a worse president, because she’s smarter and more effective than Biden, and would be smarter and more effective than Obama," Bolton said. "And I view her policies, she and her husband were a year ahead of me in law school. I’ve known them for a long time. And back in law school, she was very radical. Her appearance as a moderate these past ten years, I think, is due to the sophisticated political advice of Bill. But I think where her heart is was HillaryCare in 1993-94, the ancestor of ObamaCare. And that would be the direction of a Clinton administration."
