Would Hillary Clinton really run for president again in 2020? It would be a massive risk for her because if she lost for a third time, she would probably have to enter the witness protection program. The left would go absolutely nuts. Yet, apparently she is considering it.
The Business Insider reports:
Hillary Clinton hasn’t ruled out a third presidential run, but 2020 could prove harder than 2016
Hillary Clinton hasn’t shown any indications that she will run for the White House in 2020 — but she also hasn’t publicly ruled out the option. On Monday, CNN reported that Clinton has not closed the door on 2020, according to close friends.
“I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that, look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying ‘look, I’m not closing the doors to this,'” said CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny. Still, he added, “it does not mean that there’s a campaign-in-waiting, or a plan in the works.”
One close Clinton friend told Zeleny “it would surprise me greatly if she actually did it.”
But if she did, Clinton would face challenges wildly different from those she dealt with in 2016.
For starters, the Democratic field will not be cleared for her as it was in 2016 — up to two dozen Democrats could declare presidential campaigns. And there seems to be a general consensus among Democrats that it is time to move on and face Donald Trump with a new candidate.
Do you really think all of the Democrats planning to run are going to allow Hillary to do this? Doubtful.
