Newt Gingrich: If Hillary Clinton Runs In 2016, Republicans ‘Incapable Of Competing’

President Obama Meets With Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey in New York

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regularly brushes off the idea of a 2016 presidential bid. But if she were to run, at least one prominent Republican thinks his party would be completely outmatched.

“The Republican party is incapable of competing at that level,” Gingrich said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

“First of all, she’s very formidable as a person,” he said. “She’s a very competent person. She’s married to the most popular Democrat in the country; they both think [it] would be good for her to be president. It makes it virtually impossible to stop her for the nomination.”

In addition to having Bill Clinton’s support, Hillary Clinton would also have the backing of President Barack Obama, who will still be a “relatively popular president,” Gingrich added. “Trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl.” Read the entire story at Huffington Post.
