WASHINGTON (AA) – Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said Monday that would not give her husband a Cabinet-level post in her administration.
Asked by reporters whether former President Bill Clinton would take part in her Cabinet, the former Secretary of State shook her head and mouthed “no,” in response.
The exchange took place a day after the presidential candidate said she would give her husband a high-level economic post.
"I was saying earlier in Louisville, where we had a big rally, my husband, who I'm going to put in charge of revitalizing the economy because, you know, he knows how to do it, especially in places like coal country and inner cities," Clinton said Sunday at a rally in Kentucky.
But pressed by reporters, spokesman Nick Merrill said Monday that Clinton hasn't decided on her husband’s role if she is elected president. '"It would be getting ahead of oneself to talk about any sort of formalized role for anyone in your administration, which she has said many times with regard to vice presidential speculation and the like, but I think that her point has been time and again that, as I said, he has a lot to offer and it would be foolish not to use that in some capacity. It has not gone any further than that," he said.
Bill Clinton served as president from 1993 to 2001 and is credited with bringing the economy out of a recession and implementing policies that grew the U.S. economy during the 1990s.
