The other day, Hillary Clinton assembled a group of friends at Whitehaven, her home in Washington, D.C., where she raised a glass of wine and proposed a toast.
“I’ll be back!” she said, imitating the growl of Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator.
Everyone laughed at Hillary’s rare attempt at humor about her shocking presidential defeat.
But back as what?
Are the rumors true that she is considering a run for mayor of New York City? Is she interested in becoming the president of a university, a foundation, or a think tank?
As it turns out, according to a close Clinton source who spoke with Ed Klein Confidential, Hillary isn’t thinking about any of those roles right now.
“She’s been talking very seriously about the idea of having her own television show,” said the source. “As a TV host, she’d discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers.
“It would have to be a show that she and her people completely controlled,” the source continued. “She’s convinced she’d get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there’s so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump’s election.
“She’s utterly determined not to fade into the background. She intends to stay in the limelight and keep fighting the good fight. She knows Obama is going to be out there fighting too. But frankly, she doesn’t think he’s a great leader or a great fighter, which leaves an opening for her to be the acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party.
“She thinks being the host of a popular TV show would energize the Democratic Party base and her tens of millions of fans. It’s a way to make a comeback and position herself for another run at the White House starting in a year or so.”
