When it comes to what Bill Clinton’s job would be in the White House, Hillary Clinton offered a hint on Monday — and it doesn’t involve picking out the curtains.
During a discussion in Kentucky about manufacturing and jobs, the Democratic front-runner talked up the need for a manufacturing renaissance and suggested that her husband would be a big asset in that department.
“I’ve told my husband he’s got to come out of retirement and be in charge of this, because you know, he’s got more ideas a minute than anybody I know,” Clinton said, as people smiled and laughed. “Gotta put people back to work and make it happen. So we’re going to give it all we’ve got, absolute full-in 100 percent effort, because I worry we won’t recognize our country if we don’t do this.”
Speaking before a crowd at an Ashland, Kentucky, restaurant that included members of several unions, Clinton implored Republican governors and legislatures to cease their anti-unionization efforts. A man addressed the region’s coal dependence in the eastern half of the state, remarking that railroads could largely abandon Appalachia. “They need more places to work. They need business,” the man said.
