Bill Clinton once said “Not in 100 years” to Hillary presidency.

While biding our time for the snow plows to dig us out of this St. Patrick’s Day snowstorm, we starting looking over some past issues of the Hillary Clinton Quarterly and found this prescient quote from then-President Bill Clinton in one of our “What They’re Saying About Hillary” features —

“Hillary for President? In a profile of the First Lady this week, New Yorker magazine quoted an associate of the Clintons as saying that White House staff members have discussed a possible bid by Hillary Rodham Clinton to succeed her husband in the year 2000. But President Clinton dismissed the idea in an interview for the same article, saying that his wife wouldn’t do it ‘in 100 years.’ Yesterday, Mrs. Clinton’s spokeswoman emphatically denied that any discussions have occurred and derided the speculation as ‘beyond imagination.'”
