Warren Buffett Endorses Hillary Clinton For President In 2016

Sorry, America. You probably imagined we'd get a break from presidential campaigning, but Warren Buffett has other ideas.

The billionaire investor just endorsed Hillary Clinton for President in 2016.

"I hope it's Hillary Clinton," Buffett, the fourth-richest man in the world, told CNN on Wednesday. "I like what she believes in. I think she's extraordinarily able and energetic for that matter in pushing those beliefs. I don't see how you could have anybody better qualified."

Never shy about sharing his beliefs with the public, Buffett sparked a national debate about taxes after penning a New York Times op-ed last year calling for higher taxes on the rich to help reduce the deficit.

Clinton has been toying with everyone since forever, it seems, on whether or not she'll run in 2016. She has not completely ruled it out. The former U.S. Senator and First Lady was the runner-up in the 2008 Democratic primary contest, and she has served as Secretary of State for the past four years.
