Despite the negative light that some leaked WikiLeaks emails have shed on the former Secretary of State, Alan Patricof said he believes Americans will see a more “nuanced individual” if she were to be elected President.
“It will come out when she is President Clinton, because she has a very warm personality, she’s very relaxed as a person, she does not need to be programed, she’s her own person and she’s very, very smart, has her very good ideas. And I think that unfortunately, being on camera all the time, she has to be a lot more circumspect about every single word and every action,” he explained.
Patricof used the example of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to emphasize his point.
“I think she will find some areas that can be hopefully improved and declare victory and say ‘I’ve got what I wanted. This is a better deal than we had originally.’ There are some things that obviously people would like to see improved.”
On a personal note, he said: “I think if we don’t pass TPP… I think it will be a real shame for American business and it will be fighting in a world with one hand behind our backs.”
