As long as the Democratic field remains weak and full of—for lack of a better term—no-names—the talk of Hillary Clinton 2020 is going to bubble up. Joe Biden is at the top, but not because he’s a good campaigner. Like Clinton, he’s a two-time presidential loser, he’s now inarticulate, and has serial gaffes on the campaign trail. It’s name recognition; no one is on the Biden train because he’s such an ace at policy. He’s straight trash on foreign policy. Everyone else, well, we have a fake Native American who is trying to destroy private health insurance and a crusty democratic socialist whose economic agenda may be unconstitutional. This field doesn’t have anyone who can beat Trump. When it comes down to it, even moderate Biden is going to have the stink of far left-winger soon enough. The party for 2020 wants abortion up until the moment of birth, giving health care to illegal aliens, abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and decriminalizing border crossings, among other things. It’s appallingly unpopular. Even former Obama adviser David Axelrod lamented that this agenda is electoral death and that one of the first things you need to do to mount a serious campaign is to figure out what the people want. This isn’t it.
For all the clamoring to move on from Hillary by Democrats, there are still significant chunks of the party that still like her. Second, she has access to the big wigs that write the checks. And she has the pull to get enough political operatives and professionals to get a national campaign going. She has the people, the resources, and the national constituency to run again. She would be the frontrunner.
In the NFL, there’s endless talk about Tom Brady, arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, maybe losing his mojo. Yeah, he’s only won six Super Bowls, can still throw a deep ball, and is competing at age 42—but he’s falling off the cliff. The man is still healthy out there under center. It’s phenomenal. In American politics, the talk about the Clinton chapter of American politics closing might also be premature. Former Breitbart executive Steve Bannon said Hillary was running again. And now, we’re hearing from the depths of hell that many, many people are urging her to run again (via POLITICO):
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday declined to rule out launching a future presidential campaign after her two failed bids, saying “many, many, many people” were pressuring her to enter the race.
“I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” the former secretary of State said on BBC Radio 5 Live. “I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”
“But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans,” Clinton added.
I mean, Lady Macbeth has given off possible signs, right? Yes, she has, but she's also given strong denials of running again. But this is politics and politicians lie, and no one lies better than the Clintons. The way the 2020 field is shaping isn’t good for Democrats, especially if the economy continues to roar like it’s doing right now. For all of Trump's faults, the message of freedom, fewer taxes, fewer regulations, job growth, and patriotism is better than job-killing red tape, high taxes, forced Medicare, the death of private health insurance, no jobs, and America-bashing. The Democratic Party agenda for 2020 is one of envy, hatred of this nation, hatred for law enforcement, and a form of socialism that should make our skin crawl. It’s economic death. Hillary could be viewed as a last resort if things don’t shape up for the better. At the same time, she has to make a decision soon, as filing deadlines are drawing near. Why not Hillary? Jump on in because Donald Trump will beat you…again.
