Lazarus: Hillary says ‘many, many, many people’ are urging her to run in 2020

Why not?  HIllary got totally, pardon the expression, “Screwed” in 2016.  In case anyone fhas forgotten Hillary received THREE MILLION more votes than the failed game show host currently in residence at the While House.

Only in the absurd American system can someone receive THREE million more votes and lose an election.  We can thank the slave owning founding fathers who wanted to protect their plantation mentality for creation of the “Electoral College.”

Guess what? We have an incumbent today who most definitely has the “Plantation Mentality.”  The Founding Fathers got their wish, 230 years after this country received its “Independence.” Given the way things have matriculated we might have been better off as a subject of the British Crown.

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she is under pressure from “many, many, many people” to pursue a 2020 White House bid, but signaled that she isn’t planning to run — at least, not at the moment.

In the interview, EmmaBarnett  on BBC Radio 5 pressed Clinton on whether she is ruling out a 2020 bid.


“Well, look, I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton replied. “And, 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 made the remark in a joint interview with her daughter, Chelsea, on BBC Radio 5 Live. The two are in Britain to promote their new book, “Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”


Advisers to Clinton have said at various times over the past year that she is unwilling to completely shut the door to a potential 2020 bid.


In the Tuesday radio interview, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee was asked by host Emma Barnett about her future plans. Clinton replied that she wants to see President Trump “retired” and is “going to be helping our side try to put together the strongest possible campaign, which will be difficult.”

“Are you going to run again?” Barnett asked.

“No,” Clinton replied. “Not, no. I’m –”


“That is 100 percent?” the host continued. “So in a few days, I’m not going to open my newspaper –”


“Well, you know, I’d never say never to anything,” Clinton said.


After Barnett pointed out that there are only “a few days left” within which to file for the nominating contests in the states with the earliest deadlines, Clinton acknowledged that “it’s way past time.” But she added that she thinks “all the time” about what kind of president she would have been.


“Look, whoever wins next time is going to have a big task trying to fix everything that’s been broken,” she said.
