Bush daughter wants Clinton to run

(CNN) – Barbara Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, wants Hillary Clinton to run for president.

The 31 year-old CEO of the nonprofit Global Health Corps said she wants to see a Clinton run in 2016 in the upcoming Aug. 26 issue of People Magazine. During an interview that focused primarily on her volunteer work, Barbara Bush called Clinton "unbelievably accomplished."

But a Clinton vote by the Bush twin, herself unaffiliated politically, is not guaranteed. "I don't know who she'd be running against," said the daughter of the Republican president.

    There are many republicans who want to see her run – her "What difference does it make" how four Americans were murdered (under my watch, by the way) will haunt her forever – way beyond any election. She has exposed herself for all to see – a callous, self-serving woman who will do anything (including criminal acts) for her political ambitions. She is not worthy to hold the office of the presidency – there are many other women who surpass her by leaps and bounds – in intelligence and especially – integrity.

    In reference to the last comment spoken regarding the GOP by Gov. Christie: Mr. Paine I gladly second your motion!!!!!!!

    You are making accusations that lack credibility let alone evidence. The four murdered State Department people were in a foreign country with a significant Al Queda presence and were victims of violence that we can't always predict let alone stop. I mean, if we're keeping score, over 3,000 Americans were killed IN AMERICA under the last republican president! But I am not blaming President Bush for that, he didn't want it to happen and he had to deal with it just like President Obama and (former) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had to do when the attacks occurred in Libya.

    @ Freedom. How do you hold someone responsible for actions of others. You didn't mention all the people that died on Bush watch both of them. The 2nd Bush got re-elected.

    There were many more diplomats killed while Bush was president than now under Obama. Also, Republicans cut funding for security for our diplomats in 2 consecutive budgets, now they scream that the diplomats don't have security

    "Too bad Just sayin, Ricky McDaniel and a few others are never called on the carpet for their predictable behavior."

    Considering they are all one in the same ... I wouldn't count on it.
