John McCain: Hillary Clinton ‘formidable’ in 2016 election

US Sen. John McCain said Monday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be a “very formidable” presidential candidate in 2016.
Speaking in Chicago at an event with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the Arizona Republican praised Clinton’s work as secretary, according to Bloomberg News.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt that Secretary Clinton would be a very strong candidate,” McCain said. “I don’t think there’s any doubt she has widespread support. Her work as secretary of state, with the exception of this issue of Benghazi — which isn’t going away — I think has been outstanding. I think she would be viewed by anyone, Republican or Democrat, as a very formidable candidate for 2016.”
McCain, who unsuccessfully ran against Clinton’s 2008 presidential primary opponent President Barack Obama, also mentioned his old Senate friend Vice President Joe Biden. He said Biden is a “wonderful guy” and said to “rule Joe Biden out of this mix” would be a mistake.
At the event, both senators spoke of the need for immigration reform, according to Bloomberg.
