Well, while there some Democrats who still love her and probably want her to run again, it looks like more are looking desperately to move on from 2016. Hillary Clinton has the money to mount a third run. She has the name recognition, she has the pool of operatives to lay down the groundwork, and she could do well in this field, which while large, is profoundly average. The supposed titan of this horde, former Vice President Joe Biden, has yet to distinguish himself as a legitimate frontrunner, unapproachable, unbeatable, and dominant. His first debate performance was trash and he’s been bleeding support since then. Yes, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has seen a bump, but there is no one in this field as of now that can beat Trump. And that’s the other knock against the former first lady, even if she does manage to clear the field, she can’t win. She’s already a two-time loser. Everyone knows this. When Billy Joel dedicated a song to the Clinton at Madison Square Garden, she was roundly booed (via Fox News):

Bill and Hillary Clinton got a taste of New York's state of mind…

After singer Billy Joel dedicated a song to the former first couple and flashed them up on the screen at Madison Square Garden, initial cheers turned to boos from the audience.

The former first lady has been under scrutiny for years as she criticized President Trump and attempted to lay out the reasons she thought were behind her loss to him in the 2016 election. Former President Bill Clinton, on the other hand, faced fresh criticism surrounding his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who on Monday was indicted on sex trafficking charges.

A Clinton spokesperson denied the former president had any knowledge of Epstein's crimes, noting that he took "a total of four trips" with Epstein in 2002 and 2003.

Epstein is the least of the couple’s worries. She’s done. She’s finished. A lot of her friends and supporters may want her to run again, but I think most just want to move on. At the same time, please stay, Hillary—you continue to animate the GOP base.
