In an article for Politico, a Former Hillary advisor hinted at her wanting to run again in 2020.
Ready to go through the 2016 election all over again?
Philippe Reines, who worked for Hillary Clinton going back to 2002 and was her senior adviser at the State Department, made the argument to Politico Friday that the former Democratic nominee might actually be the party’s best hope for defeating Trump in 2020. He said no other Democrat has “anywhere near a base of 32 million people,” especially not Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The party, he feels, shouldn’t dismiss her as a failed candidate because she’s “smarter” and “tougher” than most, and she “could raise money easier than most.”
But it doesn’t sound like this is just wishful thinking on his part. He really thinks it could happen, saying the chances of Clinton running in 2020 are “not zero.”
It is slightly shocking to think that she could beat Donald Trump in 2020. Trump is much stronger of a candidate now then he was in 2016 and many who thought he couldn’t govern have been turned into Trump voters. With that being said, the Clinton machine is dangerous and should never be underestimated.
