from Western Journalism:
Dr. Ben Carson, one of the top two GOP front-runners for president, said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could face other legal problems that would keep her from continuing her campaign.
“Hillary could well be in jail, and it’s hard to run from there,” he said. Then Carson added: “I think she may not be actually in jail, but I think the controversy swirling around that will have an extremely damaging effect.”
Carson made the comments in an interview with Fox News Radio’s John Gibson. The interview was released Wednesday. At the time the interview was released, Vice President Joe Biden had not announced his intentions regarding seeking the Oval Office. Carson said that Biden would win, if he ran.
Carson said he is encouraged by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., who is considering running for Speaker of the House.
“I think he’s doing — he’s going about it the right way. He said I don’t want to do it if I can’t get the support, you know, of all the factions. That’s leadership, and that’s good. So, you know, I’m very encouraged to see that,” Carson said.
Ryan said he would consider seeking the leadership role only if he can garner support from both sides of the aisle. Former House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, was a lightening rod for controversy and was disliked by the conservative Republican faction, including those aligning with the Tea Party.
