Hillary Clinton just can’t stay away. She can’t stand the idea that she is no longer relevant in American politics so she keeps inserting herself even when she isn’t asked to do so. She is now saying she will try to help Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections. Who in their right mind will ask her to campaign with them?
The Hill reports:
Clinton mulls role in 2018 midterms
Hillary Clinton has all but avoided appearing at campaign events since her stunning 2016 loss, but some Democrats believe she would be a welcome voice in the 2018 midterms.
Despite polling that shows Clinton with low favorability ratings, they say the former secretary of State could help Democratic candidates in congressional districts she won last year.
“For me, it’s a no-brainer,” former Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman during the 2012 and 2014 election cycles, said in an interview.
“If she’s willing to go into those districts she won, she would be extraordinarily helpful,” he said.
“Trump’s numbers have only fallen in those districts, so you start there. It would be such a loss if she sat it out and a double loss if she didn’t go into those districts.”
Clinton confidants — who have spoken to the former Democratic nominee about the topic in recent months — are aware of the potential pitfalls should Clinton choose to hit the campaign trail. Clinton herself, they say, is aware of the tightrope.
Democrats are crazy if they think this is going to help them in 2018. Hillary’s numbers are at an all time low.
