A recurring question during Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has been what, if any, role her husband the "First Gentleman", Bill Clinton will hold. Yesterday, she finally have some hints toward answering this question. At a campaign stop in Fort Mitchell, Ky., Clinton said her husband would be "in charge of revitalizing the economy."
Clinton gets specific on the job Bill would have in her WH: "My husband, who I’m going to put in charge of revitalizing the economy..."— Abby D. Phillip (@abbydphillip) May 15, 2016
As The Hill adds, Clinton often boasts about her husbands economic record on the campaign trail, leaning heavily on his record of raising wages and creating jobs. "The economy does better when you have a Democrat in the White House," Clinton said at the Oct. 13 debate.
Clinton said something similar at a campaign event in early May, saying she would bring him out of retirement to create jobs.
"He's got more ideas a minute than anybody I know," Clinton said. "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."
It was not immediately clear just how Bill would proceed to revitalize the economy: after all, he already repealed Glass-Steagall which according to many was one of the main catalysts for the financial crash, while deregulating derivatives to the point where the world was flooded in over $1 quadrillion in bets upon bets only leads to short term GDP boost. Perhaps Clinton's most notable contribution will be to boost private jet travel even beyond recent disclosure involving his frequent flier status on Jeffrey Epstein's personal Boeing 727.
