Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y. offered a politician-like response to a question about a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run in 2016. Instead of answering a question about whether he would back her candidacy, he told WGDJ-AM radio in Albany, N.Y., that she has "great experience."
"It's a long way away," Cuomo said during the radio interview according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "We just elected a president they want to talk about the next election. There's no doubt that she is incredibly popular, she has great experience, and there's going to be all sorts of speculation about her political future, and she is the person who is going to make the decision."
Although Clinton, the current secretary of state, has not indicated her intention to run, speculation over the possibility is abundant a full four years before the election. Cuomo is also considered a potential presidential candidate for the Democratic Party.
Clinton is currently one of the most popular figures in the Democratic Party with a new Politico/George Washington University Poll showing her favorability ratings reaching
After a second effort to elicit a response by WGDJ host Fred Dicker, Cuomo still didn't give in. "Oh, it's a long way away. Whoever's running...are you running?" Cuomo joked. "Is somebody else running?...We have to assess all the candidates."
