President Obama Has Hillary Clinton’s Back When It Comes to Her Qualifications

During a gaggle aboard Air Force One en route to Chicago, White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz was asked about Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) remarks about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not being qualified to be president last night.

Schultz said Obama believes Hillary Clinton is qualified to be President and that she “comes to the race with more experience than any non Vice President” in recent campaign history, according to a White House pool report.

Schultz continued to say that President Obama was “fortunate” to have her serve in his administration as Secretary of State and he was “proud of that service.”

President Obama has not officially endorsed either candidate running for the 2016 Democratic nomination, but he does have Clinton’s back when it comes to questions about her qualifications.
