Ex-Gen. David Petraeus says Hillary Clinton would ‘make a tremendous President’
The former commander and CIA Director made the laudatory comments in the new book, ‘HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton,’ to be released Tuesday.

Former Gen. David Petraeus shakes hands with then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2008. The two grew close, a new book alleges, during Clinton’s time as Secretary of State.

 Former Army Gen. David Petraeus , who has traditionally stayed away from political endorsements, appears to be eager to support a Hillary Clinton candidacy, a new book alleges.

“She’d make a tremendous President,” the former commander and CIA director reportedly says in the new book “ HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton,” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes.


“Like a lot of great leaders, her most impressive qualities were most visible during tough times,” Petraeus adds.

 The comments mark an interesting departure for Petraeus, who, when it comes to politics, has typically remained quiet.


The book, to be released Tuesday, alleges that the unlikely pair forged a friendship while Clinton was Secretary of State.

According to excerpts of “HRC,” obtained by ABC News, Clinton, soon after taking office, invited Petraeus to her Washington home to drink wine and discuss Middle East issues. The night was so enjoyable that she invited him over again the next night to continue their chat.

He's braver than I thought, or else dumb as a box of rocks.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

He's both.

Can't fault his bravery during his military service, but when it comes to character outside of that, he is an idiot.
