Robert Gibbs ‘floored,’ warns Hillary she’s stepping in ring too early

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic contender to succeed President Obama in 2016, may be too eager for her own good to get the process rolling.

That was the opinion put forth by former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” as he suggested Clinton may be risking her popularity by stepping into the political ring earlier than necessary, as noted by the Washington Examiner.

“I, as a strategist, am fairly floored that she has decided to enter the public fray so quickly,” Gibbs said.

“She could do the foundation work, she could do issue work, she could build the campaign, she could develop a message without having to be so far out front there. And– and, you know, Chuck talks about strong bipartisan approval ratings, those will whittle quite quickly as she steps further and further [into the political scene].”

Gibbs counseled Clinton to chart her own course, saying: “Well, she also has to distinguish herself from her husband, too, right? [I]f her campaign becomes an extension really of either her husband’s term or the current president’s term, it’s not necessarily a good deal for her.”

    Hillary has a truth and temper problem. You know… Loose lips, sink ships.
    She is not stupid but she does think she can manipulate and scream the people into following her.

    If only her broom stick would break…
