Hillary Clinton made a major 2020 announcement. See why she left jaws on the ground
As former Vice President Joe Biden continues to struggle, the Democrat Party establishment is casting about for a candidate.
Party elites know that emerging frontrunner Bernie Sanders is a guaranteed loser in November.
And Hillary Clinton made a major 2020 announcement. See why she left jaws on the ground.
Everywhere Hillary Clinton goes Fake News Media members ask the two time failed Presidential candidate if she has any plans to enter the race.
Clinton always tries to downplay any chance she would mount a third White House bid. But she takes great care to leave the door open a crack to jumping into the 2020 race.
That happened again when Clinton appeared on radical homosexual activist Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show.
DeGeneres questioned Clinton if she would accept the spot as Vice Presidential running mate to the eventual nominee.
Clinton tried to downplay the suggestion by claiming it would never happen. But she went out of her way to dip a toe in that water by saying, “never say never.”
Look, it’s like when Barack Obama asked me to be secretary of state. I was shocked. I had no idea he was going to ask me, and I turned him down twice. He said, “I need, you know, look, the economy is in freefall. It’s a catastrophe. I’ve got to focus on that. We’ve got problems around the world. You go focus on that.”
I said, “No, no, I’m happy where I am. You get somebody else. I’m sure there’s good people around.” And the second time I
said, “No, Mr. President-elect, I’m not gonna do it,” he said, “I’m not calling you again until you say yes.” And so I’ll tell you, I started thinking about it, and I thought if I’d won, and I’d wanted to ask him to do something, I would have wanted him to do that for me.
So I never say never because I do believe in serving my country, but it’s not going to happen.
As former Vice President Biden’s campaign continues its rapid implosion, Democrat elites are increasingly desperate about the state of play in 2020.
Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senators Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren are unelectable. And billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is untested and unpopular outside of urban areas.
Party insiders could look to put Clinton on the ticket in some form to generate party unity and bring the establishment donor base on board if a left-wing candidate emerges as the nominee.
