Bill de Blasio won't endorse Hillary Clinton — yet: 'This is a different country we're living in'

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio still isn't ready to extend his support to his former boss, Hillary Clinton, as she makes a second run at the White House.

"This is a different country we're living in right now," de Blasio, who ran Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign, said Tuesday. "And I think we need to hear a vision that relates to this time, not eight years ago."

Still, de Blasio said Clinton was an "an incredibly capable leader," and that he was merely waiting to hear policy specifics from White House aspirants before deciding on an endorsement. The mayor made similar remarks Sunday in an appearance on Meet the Press.
