President Mark Gearan was quoted in the Associated Press article “Hillary Rodham Clinton is Democrat waiting in the wings.” The article ran in the New York Times and New York Newsday July 25, and analyzed Sen. Hillary Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention.
Gearan said he believes Sen. Clinton is honestly focused on beating President Bush and on her own re-election race in 2006. Nonetheless, he said he understands the fascination with Sen. Clinton's possible political future beyond 2006.
“It's always an interesting parlor game,” Gearan said.
Gearan was also interviewed on WXXI's The Bob Smith Show on July 26, about the Democratic National Convention.
