In advance of her widely anticipated bid for the presidency in 2016, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been meeting with a range of political figures, including several considered to be possible campaign managers, Politico
Clinton met Wednesday with outgoing Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee executive director Guy Cecil, who has been floated as one of the most likely candidates for the position.
It was not clear, however, whether the two discussed his role in a potential campaign, and Cecil did not comment on the meeting, according to Politico.
Clinton has also spoken with Robby Mook, who is also considered to be a potential campaign manager, but as in the case of Cecil, the details of the conversation are not known and Mook hasn't commented on it.
Both Cecil and Mook worked on Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, Politico said.
"As [Clinton] decides, she's casting a wide net and wants to hear from a variety of people on a range of specific topics, from policy ideas to what a successful campaign would look like," Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told Politico.
EMILY's List president Stephanie Schriock, another person considered to be a potential campaign manager, recently declined to tell the press whether she had met with Clinton during a Ready for Hillary conference, Politico reported.
Speculation continues about the timeframe for a possible announcement about her candidacy, while advisers are divided about whether it should be sooner or delayed for as long as possible.
According to Politico, Clinton will not announce her plans
for at least another six weeks but she may have a challenge about how she will spend her time until the possible announcement.
She has given several speeches of late during which she appeared to avoid making headlines, and there have been few demands for her to comment on big issues in the news given she is not yet a candidate or a public official.
Politico said that the key challenge is finding a new balance between her highly visible and active role on the campaign trail and the need to take a lower profile position in the period before a possible announcement.
Those close to her emphasized that she has still yet to make up her mind about whether or not to make a bid, and that the process for considering it is still ongoing, Politico reported.
