Will She – Won’t She – And What Happens If She Does?
Former First Lady and losing Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been flirting with the idea of running for president again. She says she is under tremendous pressure to launch a third try, having lost to President Obama in 2008 and President Trump in 2016.
Recent polling shows she would be the front runner if she gets back in. KIT's occasional correspondent, Tim Bryce is an author, freelance writer and the Managing Director of M&JB Investment Company (M&JB) of Palm Harbor, Florida . He is a political watchdog and shares his thoughts on the prospect of Clinton Campaign 3.0.
"When Democrats were asked who they would vote for if Hillary Clinton or John Kerry got in the race:
21% – Clinton
20% – Biden
12% – Sanders
09% – Warren
05% – Buttigieg & Kerry
Normally, this should be of concern to the other candidates, except for two things: her health is still in question, and; it is quickly becoming too late for her to file the necessary paperwork for the key primary states. If she were to jump in the race now, this could be construed as another admission the Democrats are sporting a weak lineup, which is also the same reason why Mayor Michael Bloomberg threw his hat in the ring. Her only hope is to have an open convention where she would be nominated as a dark horse candidate"
Bryce points out that there is a portion of the Democrat party that believes Mrs Clinton was "robbed" of her rightful election victory and who still see her as the savior of the party. Tim Bryce disagrees.
"President Trump would love to have a re-match as he knows he would handily win. Democrats should consider another candidate. The problem is, the leading candidates are showing their age....The Democrats are badly in need of younger blood and new ideas. Unfortunately, Secretary Clinton is not it."
