There are few people on this planet who could shake up the 2020 race as thoroughly as former First Lady Hillary Clinton. The 2016 election’s runner-up appears ready to bring her unmatched talent for disruption to the forefront of American politics in the coming days.
For weeks now, Clinton has been hinting at the possibility of dragging the Democratic Party down to her level. The eye rolls emojis have been flying on social media during this time, as the entire progressive posse seems hellbent on keeping the former Secretary of State as far away as possible. Her work in rigging the 2016 primaries has made her unwelcome in the party she once ruled over.
Her latest attempt to re-ingratiate herself to the political scene has come with a bit of a caveat; that this isn’t Hillary’s own doing, it’s at the behest of other people.
Hillary Clinton continued to stir speculation on Tuesday that she could make a late entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, saying “many, many, many people” are pressuring her to consider a third run for the White House.
The former secretary of state said during an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live that she hasn’t ruled out joining the already-crowded Democratic fray looking to be the nominee to challenge President Trump in next year’s general election.
“I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton said. “I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”
Given that the Democratic Party has received at least one late entrant in former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the organization is working to fend of accusations of a lackluster field for 2020 that is in need of saving.
Clinton is no savior however, no matter how many, many, many people are telling her that she is.
