Bryan Cranston Plans to Vote for Hillary Clinton
"I’m excited to see what she can bring to her platform."
Bryan Cranston recently revealed his 2016 presidential choice is Hillary Clinton.
"I’m invested and interested in Clinton," he said at Politico's Playbook Breakfast on Tuesday. "I’m excited to see what she can bring to her platform. I’m excited to see what she can evolve to and hopefully does not get pushed too far left."
The Breaking Bad actor, who is promoting his new film Trumbo, told The Hill that he believes in "most everything [Clinton] stands for" and thinks she can learn from what Barack Obama has done before her, particularly in regards to his healthcare registration.
Cranston told Politico that while Clinton closely represents what he's interested in in terms of social issues he "would like to see her get more close to the middle" and possibly to the right of the middle, when it comes to financial issues.
"I personally feel that I’m a social liberal but a fiscal, I wouldn’t say conservative, but definitely leaning on that side," Cranston said at the Politico breakfast. Because I don’t run my house that way, I don’t pay for something that I can’t afford and I don’t think the country should either."
He said that ideally, he would like a socially conscious, fiscally responsible candidate to "step up."
While his plan is to vote for Clinton, Cranston said that if he had to play one presidential candidate it would likely be Ben Carson. "Dr. Carson is an interesting guy to me because he’s so controlled and low-key," said Cranston.
