If there’s one thing the Democrats running for president in 2020 don’t want, it’s advice from Hillary Clinton, but she’s offering it anyway.
The Hollywood Reporter has details:
Hillary Clinton Offers Advice to 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates
Though Hillary Clinton is no stranger to Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit — she’s headlined a number of past conferences, including in 2017, when she made her first public appearance after losing the 2016 election — the audience at the 10th edition of the event in New York City was delightfully surprised to learn Friday that the former Democratic presidential candidate would be this year’s surprise drop-in guest.
Clinton was greeted with a standing ovation, and once the applause settled down, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria jumped into questions about Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All plan, the Mueller Report and more.
But, first, Zakaria pointed out that on this very day in 2015, Clinton announced her second presidential bid.
“I think of what an amazing experience it was traveling the country; talking to people, listening to people, making a case for the kind of America I want for my children and grandchildren,” Clinton said. “But I also think about what I said at the very end of that campaign when I addressed all the little girls and told them to keep dreaming and told them to be powerful, be ready to take on risks, be brave.”

Remember what Bernie said when he was asked about this very thing in March?
Sanders says he’s not interested in asking Hillary Clinton for 2020 advice
Sen. Bernie Sanders said Friday that he hasn’t spoken to Hillary Clinton for advice on the 2020 race, and frankly, he isn’t interested.
“Hillary and I have fundamental differences and that’s just what it is,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said on “The View.”
Multiple news outlets have reported that Clinton has met with 2020 hopefuls to advise on the race. But when asked whether he plans to meet with the former Democratic nominee, Sanders flatly said: “I suspect not.”
Smart move, Bernie.
