If this news in true, many are going to be surprised. Many are going to be happy and many of going to be infuriated. Hillary Clinton may be back in the race to become president in 2020.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee is reportedly weighing a third run for the Oval Office, despite her past failures.
“Clinton is telling people that she’s not closing the doors to the idea of running in 2020,” CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny said Sunday.
“I’m told by three people that as recently as [last] 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.’ “
Clinton ran against Barack Obama in 2008 before losing to him in the presidential primaries. She reignited her campaign in the 2016 then lost to President Trump in the general election.
The former secretary of state hasn’t publicly addressed a potential run recently, but said in October that she’d still “like to be President.”
“There’s going to be so much work to be done,” she said.
“I mean we have confused everybody in the world, including ourselves. We have confused our friends and our enemies. They have no idea what the United States stands for, what we’re likely to do, what we think is important, so the work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department, and it’s just going to be a lot of heavy lifting.”
The 2020 field of candidates is already crowded with hungry Democrats. They include Kamala Harris, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
We look forward to seeing what you think about a potential Clinton run.
