Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe says his "go big or go home" personality is a factor in his refusal to rule out a 2020 presidential run.
"I'd like to be Tom Brady's backup quarterback, I'd like to be the Pope too in the future. You know my personality, go big or go home," McAuliffe said on the Powerhouse Politics podcast. "I'm not thinking about it, but I never take anything off the table."
This isn't the first time McAuliffe has flirted with the idea of running for president. He said in February that he "might" consider running for president.
McAullife, who has been Virginia governor since 2014, is a longtime ally of the Clintons. He was chairman of Hillary Clinton's failed campaign in 2008.
Echoing what Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said on Wednesday, McAullife said he doesn't think the former secretary of state will run for the White House again in 2020.
"Hillary's done with elected politics," he said. McAulllife seemed to reference her recent speeches which have taken on a political tone, saying, "she has never been quiet about the issues, nor should she be." He also noted that people should try not to "read too much into it."
