“If you want to be President realize it’s about the people not about you.”
Former President Bill Clinton appeared to take a shot at his wife Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign on Thursday during the Presidential Leadership Scholars graduation ceremony that included former President George W. Bush.
Moderator David Rubenstein asked the pair of former presidents what advice they would give somebody who wants to run for the highest political office.
“I also think you have to begin with the end in mind. That is you have to say, yeah you got to win the election but why in the heck are you running,” President Clinton responded. “If you want to be president, realize it’s about the people, not about you.”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign was widely criticized for lacking a clear message as to why she wanted to be President.
