Someone thinks Hillary Clinton IS running for President in 2020…

A former Bush speechwriter lays out a view that he thinks Hillary Clinton IS following to postion herself for a third run at the American Presidency and a chance to be the first woman to do get the job….

She’d be 73 years old and year younger than Donald Trump who has already filed the paperwork for a second term…..

Trump v Clinton round 2?

Image result for clinton vs trump

Impossible?

I don’t think so….

The Democratic party is now rudderless…

There is NO strong voice among the angered base….

Wherever Hillary Clinton goes these days she greeted with warm applause and standing ovations…Her pol numbers are bound to rise back up to the pre-campaign ones….

The issues that she had in 2008 and 2016 seem quaint in looking at Donald Trump and his people….

Trump’s display of iqnorance of how things work could paly nicely to a country that will be looking for someone to calm the waters and repair the damage done around the world…

She WILL have to work hard on her interactions with the media….

She WILL have to navigate the joining of a progressive base and the supporters that gave here a almost 3 million vote margin OVER Trump….

But most of all?

She will have to figure out how to shed the policy wonk thing?

A display a STRONG heartfelt character that makes people FEEL that they CAN vote for her as a LEADER…..

Everybody KNOWS she’s qualified….

Last week, Clinton signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster. That alone isn’t noteworthy. This, after all, would be her seventh book, if you count her campaign policy venture/insomnia cure, Stronger Together. But added to all the other activities afoot, it raises few questions. Does she really have that much more to say? Or might there be another reason, besides money that she does not need, to go on a book tour, answer humiliating questions about losing to Donald Trump and stay in the headlines?

And just days ago, Clinton trolled Trump on Twitter over the courtroom defeat of his executive order banning citizens from seven majority-Muslim nations. She didn’t have to do that, of course. Most defeated rivals disappear after their loss. Instead, Clinton sounded very much like she was still on the campaign trail. (Because, of course, she is.)

Finally, consider last November’s concession speech to Trump. Absent in her remarks was any indication, as one might have expected, that she was going gentle into that good night, handing the baton to a new generation or even to a new leader. Instead, Clinton talked more about the future—explicitly including herself in that future—than she did about the past.

“I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but some day, someone will,” she said, adding, “and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.” She then quoted a line of Scripture: “Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” And she concluded, tellingly, with this: “So my friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come. And there is more work to do.”

This was not Richard Nixon’s bitter “You won’t have Nixon to kick around anymore” when he lost a race for governor in 1962, and thought his political career was over. This was someone looking ahead. More seasons to come….

Bernie for VP …

  1. I read that this morning…If she does I will be very upset…She needs to write her next book, collect the mega checks for a speaking/book signing tours and maybe campaign for the next Democratic Presidential Pick…That is what I would consider riding off into the sunset with grace and dignity…if she gets back into the fight I will not support her…I think Senator Warren take over the female mantel and run…I think she has made that clear by he actions and I think she will win the nominee…I would support her with the only exception being if Joe Biden or Al Gore ran…and the Al Gore thing would be tough only because he is just so stiff I don’t know if he could beat a Trump or Rubion once Trump leaves office next year…outside of that I don’t have any favorites…I just have guys in the Democrats I wouldn’t support…

  2. You have NO REAL idea who you will support after four years of Trump & Co…..
    Of course if comes down to it?
    You and others COULD let Trump have ANOTHER FOUR YEARS by NOT Voting for Hillary if she actually was a nominee…

    REALLY?

    When do people feel they have enough pain?

  3. Biden and Gore will not run…

    I would surly lean for Biden….

    Warren is a last choice for me…

    But against Trump?

    She would get my vote

  4. Republican political columnist Kathleen Parker raised the interesting possibility that the VP and Cabinet could force Trump from office at some point.

  5. It might be a possibility IF Trumps Republican support collapses;however,if he maintains majority support among Republicans?

    No,Pence would never be a party to it and his support of such a move would be crucial.

  6. Richard Nixon leaving office was out of desperation on the part of the Republican establishment. Does anyone believe that the Republicans in Congress at that time told Nixon to hit the bricks out of anything other than desperation?? They knew, like the Republicans know today, that Nixon would be hung around their necks in the mid-term elections.

    However, I see no rush now for Republicans today to pull a Nixon and tell Trump to leave or face the legal music — none.

    Because, contrary to our hosts fantasies, the Republicans still think they can “control” the Trumpster and get him to sign their rightwing wet dream bills. And, they are also afraid of him and his base of crazy hateful voters (see Manila), and will stick with him for the foreseeable future. They have no other alternative at the moment.

  7. Chelsea Clinton: ‘I don’t think’ my mom will run for office again

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is doing “great,” but she is likely not planning on running for office again, according to her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

    “I have no idea. I don’t think so,” Clinton said Tuesday on “CBS This Morning” when asked whether her mother was thinking about running again after her stunning election defeat in November. “I think right now she’s focused on her book. She’s focused — thankfully — on her grandchildren. She’s focused on what she can do help support work she’s been engaged in for longer than I’ve been alive around children, around women, around families. I’m just really grateful to have more time with her now than I’ve had in a long time.”…

  8. Hmmmmm?
    Selling a Book, Resurecting your name or something else?

    ….Hillary Clinton will soon embark on a three-month book tour to promote her memoir What Happened.

    Said Clinton in a statement: “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now, I’m letting my guard down.”

    Mike Allen: “And this time, she’ll go to Wisconsin.”….
