David Plouffe On Potentially Running Hillary 2016: "I'll Accept the Call...Even If It's At 3 AM"

Mar 17, 2013

Former Obama campaign manager and senior adviser David Plouffe spoke with PBS's Jeff Greenfield on March 17, 2013 at 92Y. In this clip, Plouffe answers a question about a hypothetical call he might receive from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the end of 2015 asking him to run her 2016 presidential campaign. On what he would tell Clinton, Plouffe didn't hedge.

"No, I will not run your campaign...because I'm done with that."

Plouffe went on to praise Secretary Clinton, while joking he would accept her call nonetheless.

"All I know is I'll accept the call whenever she calls...even if it's at 3 AM."
