In a few years, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo could well be fierce rivals in the 2016 Democratic presidential battle. But for now, the two seem content marching side-by-side in a local Memorial Day parade.
Yesterday, Clinton and Cuomo, both rumored to be contemplating future presidential bids, walked in lockstep in a parade in New Castle, the suburban New York town near where both have residencies. (Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have a house a Chappaqua; Cuomo has a place in Mount Kisco.)
According to a local Patch report, Clinton chatted with reporters at a pit stop near the Chappaqua train station.
"Well, I'm just happy to be here for the Memorial Day parade and to see a lot of my friends and meet some new people and be inspired as I always am every single year," she said.
Cuomo has consistently dismissed speculation that he might run for president in 2016. Clinton has been similarly coy, but is believed to be the early frontrunner in the race should she decide to enter it.
