Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently spoke with journalists in New Zealand about whether or not she was going to give the White House another shot in 2020.
Just the mere thought of this is probably enough to send many of you into fits of terror, but alas, you can rejoice!
According to Hillary, the 2016 presidential race was her last, an announcement that was so good it could’ve been heralded by angels on high.
Hillary Clinton told New Zealand journalist Hilary Barry that she will not run for president again in an interview broadcasted on TVNZ’s ‘1 News.’
“As we look ahead to the next election would you run again?” Barry asked the 2016 Democratic nominee for president.Trending:
“No,” Clinton answered. “But I am going to be very active in this coming election, in 2018, because that will be the turning point.”
Barry later asked how Clinton has managed to cope with her loss in 2016, which seems like a wasted question given she’s been making excuses for this loss ever since the day after the election. She wrote an entire book about it for crying out loud!
“It’s so important that you have more in your life to lift you up and get you going again, than whatever the setback happened to have been,” she explained. “But, it would be inaccurate to say I wasn’t devastated, because I was devastated. I didn’t expect it, I wasn’t ready for it, and it still is an ongoing process. Our country has not yet resolved it. People say, ‘Well, why haven’t you moved on?’ I say, ‘Well, there are tens of millions of people who haven’t moved on because there are still so many unanswered questions.”
The good news here is that, so long as she keeps her word — and given her track record that’s highly suspect — we won’t be seeing Hillary attempting to occupy the highest office in the land.
The real question at this point is who will be the new darling of the Democratic Party? Guess we’ll find out soon enough.
