Democratic Senators Practically Beg Hillary Clinton Not to Run for President

Democratic Senators Practically Beg Hillary Clinton Not to Run for President

Clinton herself could shut down the talk of a possible third presidential candidacy with just a few simple words. Why won’t she?

For the last several weeks, the chatter about a possible 3rd presidential campaign for Hillary Clinton has increased to a near fever pitch. The noise is so loud that is has Democratic Senators actually going on record to all but beg the failed 2016 Democratic nominee not to run.

The talk began to heat up after a Rasmussen survey released the first week in October showed a potential Clinton/Trump rematch would be “neck and neck” in the polls if she was currently in the presidential race.

That same week, Clinton said to PBS, “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously I can beat him again.”

A couple of days after the Rasmussen poll was published, Trump needled Clinton by way of Twitter by suggesting she jump into the race at this late stage in order to “try and steal it away” from Sen. Elizabeth Warren:

Clinton responded by telling Trump not to “tempt” her, which fueled speculation among the punditocracy that maybe she was considering it after all:

The following day, Trump did it again:

Two weeks later, and you had eerily similar reports from the New York Times and the Washington Post that quoted unnamed sources close to Clinton stating she had not completely ruled out the idea of throwing her hat in the ring.

Then Philippe Reines, a confidant of Clinton’s, went on the record on Tucker Carlson’s show Wednesday by confirming she “has not” closed the door on the possibility of giving it another go.


With all the talk and now an on-the-record confirmation that she hasn’t dismissed the idea, a number of Democratic Senators told Politico as politely as they could that Clinton should stay out of it:

“She’s done a great service to our country and public service, and I supported her wholeheartedly, but I believe it’s time for another nominee,” said Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin.


“I don’t think it would be good for her,” said Montana Sen. Jon Tester. “She’s been through this war once. The Republicans have made a target out of her for 30 years and she’s still going to [be] that same target. I just think it would be tough.”

“That would be a mistake,” said Sen. Martin Heinrich of New Mexico. Asked to expound, he repeated: “That would be a mistake.”

“Absolutely not,” said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.).


“We have a lot of really fantastic candidates out there already. Let’s leave it at that,” said Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono.


“The field is somewhat set,” added Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), shaking his head when asked whether Clinton should reconsider. “I think we need to move forward.”

The article also quoted a few other Senators as saying in so many words that they don’t believe Clinton is giving serious thought to cranking up the Clinton campaign machine just a few short months before the first wave of caucuses and primaries.

But the message was clear: Hillary, we love ya, but … no. Just don’t do it.

Will she heed their message and shut down the rumors? Or will her unhinged desire for revenge against Trump for her 2016 loss supersede all rational thought?

Only one person can confirm one way or the other, and after nearly a month of frenzied discussion among the political chattering classes, she’s not saying a word about it other than “maybe there does need to be a rematch.”

What does that tell you?

She’s going to end up like Harold Stassen and run for president every four years for the rest of her life.

    Why won’t she shut the rumors down?
    Simple. She wants to crank up the payments to Bill for those speeches again.
    They’ve kind of dried up since her last loss and she’d really like the money to start flowing again.

    “Hillary, please shut up and waddle off into the sunset.”

do it Hillary. do it! What have you got to lose that you haven’t already lost?

As soon as she says, “I will not be a candidate for president in 2020”, she’s done. History. Irrelevant. No one will listen to her, and her well-oiled political machine will come apart. She has to maintain the threat (and that’s what it is, a threat) of running to keep her machine going and to keep others in line.

All this is to keep the machine alive. Perhaps Chelsea will inherit it and make it work, perhaps not, but Hillary won’t allow herself to fade into the sunset.

Because it is gaining her at least one of the only 3 things Hillary actually loves, money, power, or fame.

“Obviously, I can beat him again.” So much evil baked into a simple sentence. One, she didn’t beat him. She may have won the popular vote, but she lost in the vote that counts: the electoral college. So, what’s she’s doing here, technically, is spreading seditious notions.

There isn’t a spark of grace in this Arkansas witch.

    There is no “popular vote”. Anyone claiming victory in that is just a liar.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Titan28. | October 27, 2019 at 1:44 pm

    Take out the election fraud and she lost the Pop Vote too imo.

    Oh, and she was born and raised in the swamp called Chicago.

    Early in my career as a quality control technician supporting engineering R&D of new materials, engineering downplayed the minimum and maximum test results from a large sample set as outliers, focusing instead on the median of results.

    Often as I hear the “popular vote” assertions of Democrats, I consider the results in California an outlier deserving of either factoring to normalize the result, or eliminate it from the data set altogether. If CA is treated like the aberration that it is and the popular vote is struck from the data set, Trump won the popular vote by 1.6 million votes. That seems only fair since CA has threatened secession and their radical liberal politics so often put them at odds with the other 49 states.

    Beg pardon, she’s Chicago’s witch. She just occupied Public Housing in Arkansas.

Every Professional Democrat Politician is painting a HUGE bullseye on their back. The Wicked Witch of Chappaqua is most certainly targeting them before sending her flying monkeys out to smear and prevent their re-election.

She has no scruples, no ethics and the only morality she knows is: ‘I want my Precious!’.

    “The field is somewhat set,” added Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) • There’s your sign!! ‘The Fix’, whatever that may be, is already in & Jones just let it out of the bag.

      Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to rocky71. | October 27, 2019 at 2:44 pm

      And whatever the “fix” is, the rank-and-file Democrats won’t like it, but vote “D” anyway.

a Rasmussen survey released the first week in October showed a potential Clinton/Trump rematch would be “neck and neck” in the polls

Last time around the polls showed her crushing DJT. If the polls now show them “neck and neck” that implies that he’d obliterate her in an election.

Polls or no polls, Hill is far weaker now than she was then, if only because her aura of “inevitability” is long gone. And DJT is far stronger, as we now know that he’s a man who means what he says, and not some political flake who’ll say whatever it takes to get elected and then ignore it all after Inauguration Day.

But while the voters can stop Hillary, it’s not clear that the DNC can. Anyone who tries might end up shot while jumping out a window onto railroad tracks.

No one’s opinion ever made any difference to her and it doesn’t now. She really believes the knuckle draggers with lift her on their shoulders and carry her into the WH election Trump or not. That shout out at a recent chat was the usual Clinton plant to start the ball rolling

Hillary is not going to give up 2-3 bottles of Chardonnay every day and have to go back to work. Ain’t gonna happen.

When will we be seeing one of those “really fantastic candidates” she’s talking about?

Hey Durbin- more like “She’s done a great DISservice to our country thru her SELF-service”

I encourage her to run …. I’d like to see her doing current episodes of her “bop and drop” routine. C’mon Cankles, I need that comic relief!

I honestly think that her recent statements, especially about Tulsi Gabbard, support the longstanding rumors that she suffers from Parkinson’s Disease. One of the effects of Parkinson’s is delusions. I’m not kidding about that; look it up.

Is she hearing voices these days? I’m not talking about her own. I think the woman is sick, in the medical sense.

Question asked: “Why won’t she?”
Question answered: Because she is running.

Who is better than her? Warren? Biden? ahahhhahhhaaaa. [wipes tears from eyes] Clinton may suck but so do they.

As for your savior Tulsi Gabbard. The girl is too stupid to be president. Maybe if Gabbard could get the entire left to unite behind her she might have a chance to show off her 100% progressive credentials have an iddy, biddy, tiny chance to beat a President as popular as Trump. But the way she came out against Clinton was not repairable.

I’m sorry. Clinton doesn’t care what her stupid voters think. The corrupt globalists would be more than happy to see her re-elected. Deal with it. She is running.

I, for one, would LOVE to see her run against The Donald again. To see her lose again by an even wider margin would be Maganificent!

The real reason is simple. Look at how much the clinton (Criminal) Foundation was bribed. Billions of dollars. She was such a hog that she was only leaving crumbs on the floor for the other swine of the democrat party.

Hillary could have shut down the Russian conspiracy talk, but she didn’t. It was much more important for her to have an excuse. Recall, this woman campaigned in traditionally Republican states toward the end of the campaign because she didn’t want just to win, she wanted to humiliate Trump by winning an electoral landslide. The joke was on her. She is either psychotic or an increasingly non-functioning alcoholic — or both.

Hill, if the Democrats don’t nominate, run as a third-party candidate. The political order needs a bit of shaking up. 😉
