David Plouffe: Hillary Clinton Is Democratic Frontrunner If She Runs in 2016

Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Bloomberg TV contributor David Plouffe, who ran President Obama’s 2008 campaign for president, said during an exclusive to web interview with This Week, that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic frontrunner if she chooses to run for the White House in 2016, but added that others, including Vice President Joe Biden will look at potentially running for the presidency.

“If she runs in the primary, she’s the frontrunner. Obviously the vice president is someone who will take a look at this. We have other governors and senators who will take a look at it. But I think, you know if she were to run, she would be an enormously strong candidate in the primary,” Plouffe said.

When asked if he’d manage a potential Clinton 2016 campaign for president, Plouffe said “those days are over.”

“I am done running presidential campaigns,” Plouffe said. “So — But I’ll give her whatever advice she would seek.”
