A new breed of Democratic Democrat is emerging, with the former president in the spotlight.
In a wide-ranging interview, the former first lady and her husband discuss the importance of public servants, the importance and role of transparency, and how their daughters are being educated at an early age.
The interview, which will air Sunday on “CBS This Morning,” is part of a larger series that will feature interviews with former presidents, first ladies, and members of Congress, and will air on Monday and Tuesday.
The interviews, which span three decades, are part of CBS News’ coverage of the 2016 presidential election.
The interview series will air from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Monday through Tuesday.
It will also air in Spanish.
In her interview with “CBS,” former first ladies Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton are joined by current first ladies Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, Chelsea Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren, as well as current Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).
Clinton, who has worked as an advocate for education for women, noted how much work she has been doing, particularly on women’s issues.
“I think that I’ve been a big advocate for the cause of education for girls.
And I think that’s what the next generation of girls are going to be getting into, that they can go to school,” Clinton said.
“So I think we’ve got to do a lot more to make sure that we’re investing in the next generations of women.”
Clinton added that she believes that the future of the country is in the hands of women and girls.
“I think we can make a lot of progress in the first half of the century, but there is still a lot to do.
So we’ve gotta do a little bit more,” she said.
The former first family spoke with CBS News about the importance, as it relates to their daughters, of having them attend a public school.
The former president and his wife said they want to “have a little more control” over how their children are educated, as part of efforts to help them prepare for the job of president.
Clinton said that having a young child in a public setting was important for the children to be able to understand the “politics of the world.”
She said, “If I had a child in the White House, I would want my child to understand that they’re part of the United States, that their vote counts, that if they want their kids to go to college, they can get them.”
“The reason that I want my daughter to go into school in public school is so that she understands the political process and can understand how it’s worked,” Clinton added.
“We’ve tried to make a concerted effort to make that work.
We’ve made sure that she’s never been in a classroom, never been taught in school.
So that her mind is always on the issues and not the classroom,” she continued.”
The only thing that she gets out of school is a little piece of paper,” she added.
In an interview with Fox News, former vice president Joe Biden, who ran for president as a Democrat, said that his former wife, former first daughter Jill Biden is a great example of the importance that a strong first family can have.
“There’s a big difference between a family that has been here for 20 years and a family of six that has never been here before,” Biden said.
“She’s been in the country for 20, 30 years, and her children, who are all grown up, are getting to know her in the way that we did,” Biden added.
“She’s done everything we ask her to do in a first family and she’s been a great role model for the whole family.”
“She was a great mother to my children.
And she’s a great person.
And, you know, I’m just so happy that she and I are doing well.
And the people who I serve, I really look up to her,” Biden concluded.
