Jerry Brown Hints at 2016 Run

With the phrase, “I’ll jump in at the appropriate time,” California Gov. Jerry Brown dropped a hint Wednesday that he might, after all, enter the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in 2016.

Asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer why he had not yet endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or whether he would advise Vice President Joe Biden to enter the race, Brown was noncommittal, saying that he enjoyed the privilege of being a spectator, and would answer later.

The way he phrased his response, however, left room for interpretation.

Numerous Democrats, and liberal commentators, have suggested that Brown should run. As a fourth-term governor of California, Brown would be the most experienced public executive in the field. He is also in tune with party sentiments on climate change, immigration, and many social issues–while adopting a pragmatic posture on spending, fracking and foreign policy.

Clinton is currently trailing socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in several primary states, and Biden is reportedly mulling a run.

Biden was in California ahead of the GOP debate, firing broadsides at Republicans about climate change. The night before, he had called the Republican Party the new “Know-Nothing party” on immigration.
