According to political author Ed Klein, Hillary Clinton is planning to keep her campaign team intact in preparation for yet another run for the presidency in four years.
“She’s convinced that, sooner than later, the voters will come to their senses and realize they made a horrible mistake by putting Trump in the White House,” a source inside Hillary’s camp told Klein. “She’s sure the voters will beg her to get in the race and she says, ‘I’m going to run again in 2020.’”
NewsMax reports, however, that many of Hillary’s advisors think she’s “in a state of denial.” They say she’s been depressed and drinking excessively since election day and isn’t thinking with a clear head.
“She’s convinced that [FBI Director James] Comey’s last-minute announcement that he was reopening his investigation of Hillary’s emails was planned in advance by her Republican enemies,” a source told Klein. “She’s also convinced that [Russian president Vladimir] Putin was working with Trump and that the two were in direct contact.”
It’s a vast right-wing conspiracy. No, wait, it’s the Russians. No, sorry, it’s Comey. Hold on a minute, it’s fake news on Facebook. By the time Trump takes office, we’ll have John Podesta out there blaming aliens for Hillary’s crushing defeat. Hell, they’re about the only entity that hasn’t been scapegoated yet.
But hey, if she wants to give it another go, Republicans should do everything they can to encourage her. Nothing would ensure a second Trump term more emphatically. Trump described Paul Ryan as aging like a fine wine; the exact opposite could be said of Hillary. The longer she stays in the political spotlight, the less the American people like what they see. She represents everything that is phony, slimy, and corrupt about the government. Her poor decisions as Secretary of State led to tragedy in Benghazi and unimaginable chaos in Syria. Why not make her the Democratic nominee a second time?
