“Who runs for office is really important,” Clinton said in the interview, which was intended to promote the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings project. “And even if [West] just saying that helps spark a little boy or a little girl who was watching the VMAs to think, ‘Oh wow, maybe I should do that,’ that’s awesome.”
Apparently West hasn’t approached her for campaign guidance yet — when asked she thought he’d actually run, she said, “You’d have to ask him”. As for whether her support extends to the ballot box, Clinton added that her vote would depend on the competition, saying “I think it depends on who he’d be running against.”
