As 2020 Approaches, Hillary Shows She’s Learned Nothing

2020 Clinton Hillary clinton-doj-leaks-investigation-blockedHillary Clinton appears to be eyeing the 2020 presidential race.

When asked in October if she had plans to run again, Clinton expressed reluctance, telling a reporter, “No.” However, she later added, “Well, I’d like to be president. I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”

If this weren’t enough to tip Americans off, according to a Wall Street Journal op-ed written by former Clinton adviser Mark Penn last week, Hillary Clinton will run for the office of president once again in 2020. If true, this would be Clinton’s third bid for the White House.

Penn writes that the former Secretary of State will be “Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand”, transforming her political image into “Hillary Clinton 4.0”, who the former Clinton adviser says will come “full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994.” Penn adds, “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”

Penn neglected to explain how Clinton’s new “firebrand” image would help her gain favor again among her disillusioned former supporters, or how it would help her win crucial ‘blue wall’ states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

What’s more, Penn is wrong about Clinton easily capturing the nomination.

If Clinton does decide to run, it is unlikely she will be the Democratic Party nominee, as the 2020 race will inevitably be flooded with contenders running on platforms much farther to the left than Clinton’s outmoded 1990s brand of liberalism, including probable candidates Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI), Sen. Kamala Harris (CA), Rep. Beto O’Rourke (TX), and former Vice President Joe Biden; as well as those likely planning to run again, like Sens. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Elizabeth Warren (MA).

Those protesting Clinton’s potential 2020 run loudest are, ironically, Democrats—many of whom belong to the party’s younger faction. These voters are leading the charge in moving the party leftward and have continually expressed distrust in Clinton, who they’ve (accurately) labeled a career politician and self-interested bureaucrat. Many still resent her for rigging the Democratic primary to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders from becoming the nominee, vowing to never support her if she runs again.

Nonetheless, Clinton appears confident and her former adviser seems certain that 30 years of history can be easily rewritten through a rebranding campaign.

They are not only wrong, but painfully out of touch with the current political landscape.

Still, some are looking at the silver lining of a potential 2020 Clinton run, arguing that it will provide incumbent President Donald Trump with the opportunity to defeat her once again. In response to Penn’s op-ed announcing the news, Trump consultant Kellyanne Conway tweeted simply, “Dear God, please, yes.”

Please, not another campaign season of having to hear that cackle of hers every time we turn the radio or tv! Its worse to me than fingernails on a blackboard. I’m not sure which would be worse: her or liawatha warren.

Paul W

Learn anything? She doesn’t need to. She knows EVERYTHING. Just ask her.

mytake

NO WAY! That criminal. I don’t think so. Arrogant ,smug, communist, liberal freak.

William

This is looking more like a bloodless communist coup with every passing day. And nobody is really stepping up to say so or to stop it. Painful to watch.

Phil

I guess she didn’t scam enough money for the Clinton Foundation during Bill’s presidency or her stint as Sec of State. Her and Bill have been Crooks all their lives and have no understanding of justice, integrity or just plain common values.

Can you run for president from a prison cell , only in America

Alan

Hillary as over heard in the dressing room: I want to be Queen of America, Damn It!

Thomas H

Yes, she’s once…. twice…. three times.. a loser.

Jerry

Isn’t she supposed to be in prison?

Debora

Wonder how many doppelgängers she will trot out this time?

Joe_P

Can she run for POTUS from Leavenworth?

Kim

Does Mark Penn have a book to sell? I don’t think Hillary would put herself through that humiliation again. Yes, she would like to BE president. So would I. We both agree on one thing, though: neither of us wants to RUN for president.

Bonnie

Hillary Clinton needs to be imprisoned not on the streets performing behind a microphone.

Hen3ry

I think She is always trying to
Learn new ways to
Hoodwink & Scam the American public.

If the democrats are stupid enough to waste millions on this career criminal politician, then let ’em have at it. The select list of hard left morons in the article, including Gropin’ Pervert Joe Biden who will be at 80 years old, are all they have to throw against Trump, it’s going to be an easy reelection.
You ever watch a video of a embryonic cell dividing? That’s what’s happening to the USA, a very slow, agonizing division with the extremes on ‘both sides’ getting further and further apart, with violence particularly from the leftist fascist department, until this nation splits into something else with a second civil war.

Scottar

Inside info is if she runs again it will be further left then last time to capture the Bernie socialist crowd if her health holds out. That could insure Trump’s reelection. It largely depends on the economy and jobs.

Cora

Kelly Ann Conway is right, “Dear God, yes!” Trump wins again!

Arnold G Watters

She is incapable of learning and has so far gotten away with it. One day I will celebrate her death and make the pilgrimage to piss on her grave.

Bob L.

I don’t consider her to be eligible to serve as potus since she already served 8 years as co-potus. She may not have been out front, but such a strong willed woman as she most certainly influenced a lot of what is credited to Bill.

Pete from St Pete

Tell Kellyane Conway to be careful what she wishes for. I said “Thank you God” the first time I heard a little known Senator with no practical experience was running for President and darned if he didn’t get elected. Then I said the same thing when I heard a loud mouthed businessman with no political experience was running for the Republican nomination and darned if he didn’t beat out several more experienced and qualified opponents. I think it was Will Rogers who said many years ago “don’t underestimate the stupidity of the electorate”.
