The Democrat presidential primaries just got thrown into chaos.
And it’s all due to Hillary Clinton.
That’s because Hillary Clinton gave an interview and said this one word about 2020 that no one could believe.
Hillary Clinton just can’t get over the fact that she lost in the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
And in the days after her defeat, rumors swirled that Clinton would mount a third White House bid.
Clinton would routinely half-heartedly shoot down the speculation.
But now with Democrats panicking about their field of candidates because Joe Biden is faltering, and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are too liberal to win a general election, she is changing her tune.
In a recent interview with the BBC, Clinton threw gasoline on the fire surrounding her 2020 intentions by saying she would “never” rule out running for President in 2020.
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday declined to rule out launching a future presidential campaign after her two failed bids, saying “many, many, many people” were pressuring her to enter the race.
“I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” the former secretary of State said on BBC Radio 5 Live. “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 added.
Whereas in previous election cycles the field narrowed as the primaries approached, 2020 is different: Democrats continue to join, indicating an unsettled and broadening race less than three months before the Iowa caucuses and as polls reflect shifting support for top-tier candidates.
Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick are thinking about entering the race because the Democrat primaries are a mess.
But Hillary Clinton would easily enter the race as the biggest name in the field.
Regardless, many Democrats feel they have “been there” and “done that” with the Clintons and are ready to move on.
