WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – In campaign stops in Kentucky today, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that in addition to being First Gentleman, her husband Bill will play a major role in her administration.
However, in an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, ruled out appointing her husband to the position of Secretary of State.
Theoretically, the 42nd president of the United States would be eligible to serve in his wife’s cabinet. However, Hillary said that appointing him Secretary of State would be too close to the presidency and would be in violation of the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment prohibiting a U.S. president to serve a third term.
The Secretary of State is fourth in line to succeed the president of the United States, behind the Vice President, Speaker of the House and the Senate President.
When asked what position she would give her husband if she is elected president, Hillary said she is leaning towards Chief of Staff and head of White House interns.
