As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Top Former Hillary Clinton Aide: It’s Not Likely, But She Might Just Run

Honestly. People talked about moving to Canada if President Trump were elected. Of course, they all stayed and are now enjoying the benefit of his fantastic economy.

But if Hillary Clinton ran again, I might have to move to Canada. And not just Canada. I’m talking Saskatchewan.

Forget that she’d ruin the country. I just couldn’t stand to listen to her – to her, Bill and yes, the increasingly annoying Chelsea – for a whole 18 months.

Her former top press aide and senior strategist Philippe Reines floated what looks a lot like a trial balloon, commenting to Politico that she could run again and her name should be “in the mix.” Look, given the quality of the prospective Democratic field, I’d say, yes, she could get the nomination. But if someone reasonably strong emerges, then definitely not.

Because Hillary Clinton is the consummate has-been.

According to Politico:

“It’s curious why Hillary Clinton’s name isn’t in the mix—either conversationally or in formal polling—as a 2020 candidate,” said Philippe Reines, her longtime gatekeeper in the Senate and at the State Department. “She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She’s younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders’ second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.”

Even if half of those people would no longer support Clinton in another election, Reines argued, “there’s no one in the Democratic Party who has anywhere near a base of 32 million people. That’s multiples of what a Sanders or a Warren have.”

Reines said his biggest fear for the Democratic Party is that they realize, only in hindsight, that dismissing Clinton for the errors she made in 2016 was a mistake.

“Chalking the loss up to her being a failed candidate is an oversimplification,” Reines said. “She is smarter than most, tougher than most, she could raise money easier than most, and it was an absolute fight to the death.”

Does Reines plugging Clinton as a viable 2020 candidate mean that she’s running?

“It’s somewhere between highly unlikely and zero,” he said, “but it’s not zero.”

  1. Wouldn’t it be great to have Hillary and Betty Warren in a televised debate/runoff/hair pulling contest for the Democrat nomination in 2020. Oh yes. It would.

  2. The other side of Hillary’s political background is that she was beaten by an virtually unknown Black man from Chicago, then by a famous(notorious) entertainer/businessman from NYC.
    She really wants it, just because, now.
    She’s ill, not ready for prime time and watching her is getting to be a sad thing.

  3. DEMON DEMS – They will : lie , cheat, steal, make up fake news, there is no sleaze they wont do.

    That is just who they are…and have been!

    Actual Libs are estimated to be only 29%
    of the USA

  4. Evil Black man was backed and financed by the Saudi Prince……bought his way to be the President to do his bidding. The Prince who was arrested until he gave MBS 100 billion us dollars!

    Don t feel sorry for these scoundrels…they should be executed….just like a .exe file!!

  5. I’ve always felt she would run in 2020…she refused to disappear after her crushing defeat, and has led the narrative that the presidency was stolen from her. The Dems are dumb enough to nominate her again.

  6. Please, Hillary, keep on running. The more that you poke your head out of the woods and irritate everyone, the better the chance you’ll end up in prison for your crimes.
