House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in an interview published Friday that Hillary Clinton would not only win if she were to run in the 2016 presidential race, but would be the "best-prepared person to enter the White House in decades."
Pelosi told USA Today that endorsing Clinton at this point wouldn't be appropriate, but she hopes the former secretary of state throws her hat in the ring.
"I don't know why she wouldn't run," Pelosi said. "She's prepared. She's well-known. She's highly respected. She knows she could do the job very, very well."
Pelosi then touted Clinton's credentials.
"If Secretary Clinton were to run — and we think if she ran, she would win — I believe that she would be the best-prepared person to enter the White House in decades, in decades, with all due respect to her husband, present company and other presidents," Pelosi said.
