The path to the Oval Office isn’t paved. Suze Orman sat down with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, Sept. 22, to share her thoughts on Hillary Clinton’s bid for the presidency in 2016, and she’s a bit worried.
“I think Hillary has a really rough road ahead of her,” the personal finance guru, 64, said. “There’s nothing that would’ve made me happier to see her come out and be strong and go for it and not have all this stuff in her way. …I don’t think she’s doing that well … and I’m worried about that.”
The “stuff” includes the former Secretary of State’s controversy over using her personal email accounts instead of her government issued one to conduct official business, and more recently, a new book that claims the Democratic front-runner, 67, has health issues.
The financial expert believes Clinton needs to come out fighting. “You have to be yourself, you have to come out there and just say what’s true,” Orman said. “You just have to keep going for it.”
While she wishes the former first lady would step up her game, what Orman is really upset about is all the money being spent on negative campaigns that could be going to help solve the country’s deficit problem instead.
“I just think the money everybody raises — the hundreds of millions of dollars — to do what? Bash each other? I’m sad about the whole thing,” she griped. “And we really need that money! Why are you spending that money to tell lies about each other?!”
