McCaskill: GOP scared to run against Clinton

Sen. Claire McCaskill took aim at Karl Rove on Sunday for his comments on Hillary Clinton's health, adding Republicans are nervous to run against her in 2016.

"We all know what this is," the Democrat from Missouri said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "It's a cheap political shot. It's the kind of politics that make people not want to participate, and it's too bad."

Earlier on the same program, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Republicans weren’t worried about facing Clinton in 2016 because she’s a known commodity. But McCaskill disputed that assessment:

"This is a strong, smart leader who is going to be a terrific president. And I don't care what Reince Priebus says, they do not want Hillary Clinton," McCaskill said. "Because they know she is going to ignite a spark and enthusiasm across this country and she has got the strongest resume for president of anyone who's run in a very long time."

In the end, the discussion of Clinton’s health won’t sway her against running for president in 2016, the senator added. “We don’t not know for certain that Hillary Clinton is going to run, but there’s one thing I know for certain: Karl Rove engaging in cheap shots is not going to back off Hillary Clinton.”
