Ed Klein told Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade on Monday that Hillary and former President Bill Clinton are eyeing the White House, but that Hillary will only be able to run “if her health holds out,” and “that’s a big if, of course.”
Klein, a former New York Times magazine editor, said, “At this very moment we’re speaking right now … the [Clintons] are already thinking seriously about running in 2016.”
“She will be 69 years old,” Klein said. “And as you know — and I don’t want to sound anti-feminist here — but she’s not looking good these days. She’s looking overweight, and she’s looking very tired.”
However, Klein insists that Hillary will seek the White House if she can.
“If her health holds out, there’s no question in my mind she and Bill — two for the price of one — will run in 2016,” Klein said.
Hillary also said in India that she hopes to see an American woman become president.
According to Klein’s latest book, Bill Clinton said that Obama “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.” Hillary reportedly brushed off the suggestion, telling her husband that 2016 remains a possibility.
A spokesman for Bill Clinton told the New York Post that Klein’s account was “totally and completely false,” describing the author as “a known liar.”
