Clinton Says She Is Done Being A Candidate–But Will Remain In Politics

Hillary Clinton says she will not be a candidate, but says she will remain in politics. She is already involved in influencing the Democratic Party, trying to keep it conservative in an age in which it is necessary to move left and differentiate from the Republicans to win. Even her promise of not being a candidate has to be taken with a grain of salt considering how frequently Clinton has lied in the past–probably coming second to only Donald Trump as the most dishonest politician ever.

The Washington Post reports:

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she will not pursue the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

“I am done with being a candidate,” Clinton said on CBS’s “Sunday Morning.”

Clinton — who on Tuesday will release “What Happened,” her memoir of the 2016 campaign — does plan to stay involved in national politics, just not as an “active politician” who may launch a campaign.

“But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake,” she said in an interview with Jane Pauley.

While we cannot count on Clinton to keep her word not to run, now that she has attacked Obama, Biden, and the DNC in addition to Sanders, it is doubtful that the Democrats would still want her as a candidate. I would also hope they learned their lesson after Clinton lost an election against Donald Trump which probably could have been won by nominating a random name pulled out of the phone book as opposed to Clinton.

    The stupidity you spew is amazing! Nobody running against trump would have won. I checked were I voted to see if my vote counted. There's was no record of my vote! Check your shit before you spew!!

    I miss the days when Democrat were the “reality based community.” Now so many of them are even dumber than the Trump supporters.

    Checking the actual facts available, such as polling data and the scandals Clinton was involved in, it certainly does look like virtually anyone else nominated by the Democrats would have won.

    B-b-but Hillary can do no wrong!

    She can only be wronged!

    (to quote Anton Chigur:  "You married into it?  You married into it . . . ")

    33 states have vote suppression laws, 6 million are not allowed to vote due to prior felonies, and Karen Handel personally purged many thousands for having the same first and last name as someone in another state: ex. John Smith. Republicans are un-American and cheaters. There is 100% certainty in my mind that many GOPers cheated once again to let this deplorable creature win.

    I've seen evidence that Comey's unfair thrashing eight days before the election turned the tide against Hillary.  Not to mention the Russian collusion and fake news bots (trashing the Clinton Foundation, etc. etc.)  Also the billion dollars in free media given to Don "The Con".  And be aware that institutionalized misogyny is still present and powerful throughout the nation, including among a huge section of women.  In addition, disappointed Bernie supporters acted like spoiled adolescents. Quit attacking Hillary, she has always been a great public servant.

    Remember when both GOPers and Dems expected wisdom, honesty, honor, stability, and judgement from a POTUS?  We had all that with Obama and would have still with Clinton.  Sad.

    All excuses which have been debunked. Clinton was already falling in the polls before Comey’s letter came out, plus Clinton brought this on herself by both grossly violating the rules and then repeatedly lying about it. Shattered exposed how Clinton decided to blame Russia and others withing twenty-four hours of her loss to shift the blame. She was a terrible candidate who went on to run a terrible campaign. A half way decent candidate would still have won despite all of these factors.

    Someone who has repeatedly used her position for personal financial gain is hardly a “great public servant.”

    "And be aware that institutionalized misogyny is still present…"

    Any woman who is repeatedly cheated on and humiliated by her husband and still stays married to him is a self-loathing misogynist herself.

    Unless she is also a rapacious ladder-climbing desperado, it which case she becomes both.

    True feminism is not merely male mimicry.  It does not involve upholding a status quo created by a patriarchy.

    Hillary's utter self-absorption rendered her myopic, overconfident, and deluded.  She was and remains her own worst enemy.

    "disappointed Bernie supporters acted like spoiled adolescents. Quit attacking Hillary . . . "

    As myopic a statement as your candidate.  Physician heal thyself!

    Hillary bears responsibility for Trump.  The terrible results of Trump's presidency will rest on her head.  The DNC apparatchiks who stacked the deck in her favor are culpable as well.

    While there is no doubt that misogyny is present, I also question whether Clinton was hurt as opposed to helped due to her gender.

    Many people who would not vote for a woman due to gender would also not vote for a Democrat. Despite claims from Clinton supporters that Sanders supporters were misogynists, this hardly holds up. Many Sanders supporters initially backed Warren before she said she would not run. Some Sanders supporters voted for Stein–and far more would have if they though she had any chance to win. Many Sanders supporters now back Tulsi Gabbard for the 2020 nomination.

    On the other hand, many female Democrats backed Clinton primarily due to her gender. A male Democrat with her conservative views and record, not to mention her scandals, would have been a third tier candidate with no chance to even win the nomination.

    And yes, Clinton and those who backed a candidate as unfit as her, are directly responsible for us getting stuck with Trump.
