The fact that Hillary Clinton is still playing an active role in politics have led some to believe that she may actually attempt to run for president again in 2020.
While Clinton has naturally not commented on the matter, there is reason to believe that she may once again attempt to beat Donald Trump to become the first female president of the United States.
One notable sign that Clinton may be considering another presidential run is the fact that her former campaign press secretary is now running a new “resistance” organization that the former State secretary is raising money for. The organization, called Demand Justice, champions favorite Democrat causes such as abortion rights, voting rights and access to health care. It is also currently trying to unite Senate Democrats against Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s nominee for the Supreme Court.
In addition to her involvement in the “resistance,” Hillary Clinton has sent out nearly half a dozen emails in the last month alone, and is active in raising funds for Democratic causes. By donating these funds to activist groups, she is essentially earning their goodwill just as she has the past. At the same time, she is networking with activists who could potentially support her in 2020.
While Hillary Clinton’s former campaign strategist and a former lawyer for her husband are both publicly advising her against another presidential run, Hillary Clinton is not the sort of woman who would take such suggestions at face value. What is more, there is a very real chance that she could win the Democratic nomination should she decide to run again — all you have to do to see why is look at her competition (there isn’t any).
A crowded playing field would be in her favor, as anti-Clinton Democrats would be faced with choosing between well over a dozen potential candidates while pro-Clinton Democrats would focus their energies on promoting a single individual.
It’s also worth noting that the Clintons are filthy rich and also talented fundraisers in their own right. Clinton could easily outspend anyone who opposes her in just about any state. Furthermore, the fact that she has name recognition on her side should not be taken for granted. The odds are that she would beat even well-known Democrat contenders in their own states, not to mention little-known, fairly new Democrat politicians who may be considering a shot at the presidency.
Naturally, it is also possible that Hillary Clinton won’t get another shot at the presidency. She is over 70 years of age and health problems may force her to reconsider her political ambitions. Alternatively, the party may opt to rally around a lesser-known yet more dynamic candidate in the same way that voters rallied around Barack Obama in 2008. It is also possible that Hillary Clinton simply wants to remain in the limelight without the risk of losing in the same way she did in 2016.
Evidence is mounting that Hillary Clinton could be considering running for President yet again. It would be an unprecedented campaign given the fact that political parties tend to avoid presidential candidates who have already lost an election in the past; however, it could very well happen.
The Republican Party would probably welcome Clinton’s campaign as a godsend. Her divisive nature, past controversies, numerous scandals and unwise comments made after the 2016 election would give Republican voters the incentive needed to do everything in their power to ensure that she does not win. There are also plenty of Democrats who voted for her last time around, but would be unwilling to do so again.
If Hillary Clinton does decide to enter the presidential race in 2020, the odds are that she could very well wind up even more embarrassed than she was last time around. If you’re a Trump supporter, this could be the best-case scenario.
