This is too good to be true. Just recently Hillary said she’s not running for president in 2024. And you can take her word to the, um, whereever.
But “whispers” have started. Hillary 2024.
CNN’s Chris Cillizza, The whispers of Hillary Clinton 2024 have started:
In the immediate aftermath of the Supreme Court’s monumental decision to overturn Roe v Wade, conservative writer John Ellis took to the internet to make a provocative case: It was time for Hillary Clinton to make a(nother) political comeback.
“Now is her moment,” he wrote. “The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade creates the opening for Hillary Clinton to get out of stealth mode and start down the path toward declaring her candidacy for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination.”Ellis’ argument is centered on the ideas that 1) President Joe Biden, who will be 82 shortly after the 2024 election, is simply too old to run again (Ellis is far from the only person making that case) and 2) The Democratic bench is not terribly strong.He’s not the only person eyeing a Clinton re-emergence.
Her pre-2016 election promise to her younger self is unfulfilled.
While I find it utterly implausible that Clinton would run against Biden in a primary in 2024, I also think that an open nomination — if Biden takes a pass on running — would be something that would be hard for Clinton to not at least look at. That’s not to say she would run. It’s only to say that her name would get bandied about if the seat was open. That’s a lock.
Sounds like trolling to me. But just the thought of it ….
On the plus side, maybe we’ll finally find out what happened to those 30,000 deleted emails.DONATE
