Rendell: Hillary Would Have Had "A Lot More Executive Experience"

Former Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA), and former chair of the DNC, touted Hillary Clinton's executive experience on CBS' "This Morning," something he noted Obama did not have during the 2008 election.

"I think she would have come in with a lot more executive experience. I think the president was hurt by being a legislator only," Mr. Rendell told CBS News on Thursday morning.

Mr. Rendell was a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton during the hotly contested Democratic presidential primary in 2008. Transcript below.

Charlie Rose, CBS News: "You supported Hillary Clinton, strongly. Do you think we would have been in a different place if she were elected?"

Fmr. Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA):" I think she would have come in with a lot more executive experience. I think the president was hurt by being a legislator only. For example, healthcare and the stimulus, two bills that I think did good things for the American people -- too much of it was left up to the Congress. He sort of said, 'here is my concept, you guys flush it out.' I think Hillary Clinton would have sent them a bill and said, 'here's what I want.'"
