Former President Bill Clinton said he thinks McGraw has “it” – political skills like the ability to relate to people and understand their values – during an interview in the current issue of Esquire.
McGraw told the magazine he has no immediate plans to enter politics, but didn’t rule out future runs for the U.S. Senate or the Tennessee governorship. He identified health care as his top issue.
A few years ago he passed up a run for the Senate. The Tennessee seat eventually went to Republican Lamar Alexander.
