Some people are just addicted to the spotlight and public life. You would think after such a stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton would want to retire but no. She and Bill are reportedly plotting their comeback.
The New York Post has the story:
The Clintons are hatching a plan for their comeback
The Clintons are already plotting their comeback, a new report details.
Hillary Clinton is looking for a path to return to the political fray, as both she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, examine how the former secretary of state suffered the most surprising, epic political defeat in recent memory, Politico reports.
“[D]espite the grave disappointment, resilience is in the Clintons’ DNA. So, while I certainly don’t expect to see them trying to assert their authority, I think there will be natural and welcome opportunities for them to engage,” said Mack McLarty, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff.
Hillary Clinton is receiving briefings from her former campaign manager, Robby Mook, explaining what went wrong in the 2016 presidential race, while Bill Clinton has been blasting FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the election.
Neither is expected to seek public office again. But both are now expected to be involved in Democratic politics for years to come.
This is going to cause problems for the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party which wants to take over.
It should be entertaining to watch.
