Is Hillary Clinton going to run?
That is the question of the day right now, every day, because the common belief from most Democrats is that the current slate of candidates does not have a chance to beat Trump in a general election.
Lots of Pressure
If you want to know how unsure Democrats are about this election, just listen to what Hillary has to say on running…
“I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”
“I, as I say never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”
There are three things that are rather amusing and/or alarming, depending upon your point of view, about what Hillary had to say.
The first is that Hillary is still insisting that she won the election.
Does anyone in this country that respects our Constitution really want a president that completely disrespects the electoral college?
She also talks about Trump undermining our “democracy,” but is it actually Democrats that are literally inventing laws and breaking standard rules to undermine and unseat Trump.
Finally, the fact that at this stage, people in the Democrat Party are actually looking to Hillary as a last-ditch effort to beat Trump in this election is pretty amazing.
Polls have shown the public simply wants her to go away, yet this is the person they are now looking to in order to beat Trump?
Hillary says she has no plans to run right now, but you better believe if a Biden scandal takes him out of the race, Hillary will undoubtedly enter this race… and lose again.
