Isaiah Washington: Michelle Obama Should Run With Hillary Clinton

Actor chimes in on major political announcement.

Published April 12, 2015

Isaiah Washington has a novel idea for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign: add Michelle Obama to the ticket. The former Grey's Anatomy star offered his two cents on HuffPo Live after it was revealed that Clinton would formally announce her bid.

The former secretary of state announced her intention to run on Sunday (April 12) with a video entitled "Getting Started." Said Clinton, "everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion." 

Washington's advice may help Clinton go further than she did in 2008, when she lost her party's nomination to the FLOTUS's husband, Barack Obama.


The actor has been full of advice lately. He recently advised Chris Rock to "adapt" to racial profiling after the comedy icon posted a selfie of himself being pulled over by cops for the third time in two months. "Black Twitter went crazy because in the real life, how can you adapt to racial profiling?" he later explained, admitting that Rock "never responded" to his friendly guidance.

As for his own plans, Washington has been starring in the CW's The 100, which was picked up for a third season last month, and has an upcomig flick with Being Mary Jane's Gregory Alan Williams, The Sin Seer. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
