What’s next for Hillary Clinton? First, let’s give her a break

Hardball-Let Me Finish

Let me finish tonight with this.

I love this Hillary Clinton story. Just look at her resume: valedictorian at Wellesley, Yale Law School, practicing attorney, First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of the United States, United States Senator from New York, U.S. Secretary of State.

That would be enough to get her in Who’s Who, don’t you think?

But what I really wish — because I really like her — is for this great American to simply take a break. Get away from all outside influences, read those novels you’ve put off, see some movies with your pals, have some fun with Bill, but see what comes to mind, see what visions and purpose come into your long-term outlook.

There are few people on this planet or in our history to have the Presidency of the United States on their possible to-do lists. There are few people with the historic role that Secretary Hillary Clinton could play down the road.

The smart move, I think, is for her not to make a move. Let us wait. Let Big Bill wait. See how this second Obama term starts off. Learn how the country is doing. Watch, listen, enjoy life in this country. You’ve spent four years traveling the world. Kick back and enjoy this country.

I wish her well.
