(CNN) – Rahm Emanuel said Wednesday he thinks that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will once again run for the White House, and pledged to support her campaign if she did.
“I’m behind Hillary if she runs,” the Chicago mayor and former senior aide to President Bill Clinton said in an interview with Jake Tapper on the Lead. “And I think she will, but that’s up to her. If she runs, I’m in.”
As for his own rumored presidential ambitions, Emanuel, a former congressman, dismissed it outright. “Absolutely not.” He added, “I have no interest.”
