OK, it’s Mark Penn, who is wrong about everything, but still, when he says that Hillary Clinton will run for President in 2020, I have a very bad feeling about this:
Two-time Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will mount a third bid for the White House, longtime Clinton adviser Mark Penn wrote in an op-ed published Sunday by The Wall Street Journal, predicting that the former first lady and secretary of state is readying a “Hillary 4.0” campaign for 2020.
In the Journal op-ed, Penn, an adviser and pollster to the Clintons from 1995-2008, and former New York City politician Andrew Stein wrote that in a 2020 run, Clinton would reinvent herself “as a liberal firebrand.” The twice-failed presidential candidate would not “let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House,” they wrote.
Although she has routinely shot down talk of a 2020 run, Clinton said in an interview earlier this month that “I’d like to be president” after answering “no” when asked whether she wanted to run for president again.
Please, someone make it stop.
Another Clinton run is like making Mary Mallon your caterer at your son’s Bar Mitzvah.
