One question was driving the conversation Monday morning at the Clinton Global Initiative after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the New York City-based philanthropic summit: Is she laying the groundwork for a presidential run in 2016?
That assessment of the chatter comes from Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who hosted forums at the event.
“Everybody at Clinton Global was asking that in the lobby,” Lemmon said on CNN’s “Newsroom,” when asked whether Clinton looks primed for a 2016 run. “…I think people who work around her, near her, with her are, of course, very quiet. But everybody knows she is drawn to service, so, let’s wait and see.”Although Hillary Clinton is currently not a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), her husband Bill and daughter Chelsea are both members.
