“She wants to take on Trump.”
Hillary is like an angry cat lying in wait.
Still furious that Orange Man Bad defeated her in 2016, and that Democrats of lesser worth (in her mind) are lining up to challenge Trump in 2020, she waits, still thinking of herself as the “real president.”
Waiting. (But I repeat myself.)
For the day, when the huddled Democrat masses will turn to her and say: Help us Hillary, we need you!
So many say it’s her Impossible Dream.
But still, Clinton world is letting it be known that she’s not ruling anything out.
We pointed out in July 2018, Hillary 2020 – All signs point to “She’s Running”:
There is a large field of lesser Democrat wannabees, for whom Hillary has zero respect and to whom she would not defer. Hillary and Bill made people like Kirsten Gillibrand — who threw Bill under the #MeToo bus — and they will not stand in Hillary’s way. In 2016 Elizabeth Warren could have beaten Hillary, but got scared away likely because the Hillary oppo-research machine (remember the Steele Dossier?) would have exposed Warren’s Cherokee problem to a greater extent than anyone else. Team Hillary likely has that deep dive into Warren’s upbringing in Oklahoma on the shelf, ready-to-go….
Is Hillary running?
I’m still in the better than 50/50 camp. She wants to, more than she has ever wanted anything before in her life. Her destiny was stolen from her, in her mind, and she will not let it go.
And again in November 2018, Former Hillary Adviser: “Hillary will run again”
Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.
Now this report from CNN. Sure, it’s CNN, but it rings true. Via The Hill:
Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, reportedly has yet to rule out running for the Oval Office again in 2020.
CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny said Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that Clinton told people “as recently as this week” that she isn’t “closing the doors to the idea of running in 2020.”
“I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying ‘look, I’m not closing the doors to this,’ ” Zeleny said.
“It does not mean that there’s a campaign-in-waiting, or a plan in the works,” he continued….
“Most losing presidential candidates never totally close the doors to running for president, something that’s really hard to do. So I put this in the category,” Zeleny said.
“But I think we have to at least leave our mind open to the possibility that she is still talking about it,” he added. “She wants to take on Trump. Could she win a Democratic primary to do it? I don’t know the answer to that.”
