Hey Joe, Pick Me: Hillary Clinton Says She’s ‘Ready To Help’ In A Biden White House
Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says she’s “ready to help” if Joe Biden is elected president and would readily serve in his administration “to help fix the US.”
The former secretary of state made her remarks at the 19th Represents Summit.
Hillary: ‘I’m ready to help in any way I can’
“I’m ready to help in any way I can because I think this will be a moment where every American – I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care – every American should want to fix our country,” Clinton said.
“So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that,” Clinton added.

Clinton hailed Kamala Harris pick
Clinton served as secretary of state during Barack Obama’s administration when Biden was vice president.
She received significant backlash from Republicans over her handling of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and the controversy over the questionable use of her private email server.
Clinton recently praised Biden’s decision to tap Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate.
“I’m thrilled to welcome @KamalaHarris to a historic Democratic ticket,” Clinton tweeted on Tuesday.
“She’s already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader.”
“And I know she’ll be a strong partner to @JoeBiden,” she added. “Please join me in having her back and getting her elected.”

Clinton hoped media will provide ‘less sexist’ election coverage
Harris also came up during Thursday’s summit. Clinton said she hoped there would be “less sexist” reporting with Harris and other women running for office.
“I still hope, especially with Kamala on the ticket, that the coverage of women running for president or vice president will be less sexist, less sensationalist and less trivializing,” Clinton said.
I think so, but why wait? "two months"

On Biden and Harris’ possibly winning and governing the country, Clinton said they had their work cut out for them.
“They are inheriting a mess of historic proportions,” Clinton said. The former first lady added that she did not think the COVID-19 pandemic will have subsided by January if Biden and Harris take office.
“I think Joe and Kamala together will be absolutely ready for lots of long, long days and very short nights working to get as much done as quickly as possible,” Clinton said.

Clinton doubts Trump will go ‘silently into the night if he loses’ the election
Clinton also said she has doubts if Trump would even leave the White House if he is defeated in November.
“I don’t want to scare people, but I want you to be prepared. I have every reason to believe that Trump is not going to go, you know, silently into the night if he loses,” Clinton said.
