And the Washington Post should stop him if he – shit, too late.
Hillary Clinton should absolutely not run for president in 2020. And Democrats should stop her if she tries.
To be Scrupulously Fair to Cillizza, he didn’t start this particular trash fire, Politico did: Hillary Clinton Is Running Again. Quick locate your surprised face and affix it to the front of your head.
Cillizza saw the flames and like a half-assed and really dim Prometheus, brought some of it back to the WaPo where he used it to set fire to some Straw Clintons he had left over from the election.
There’s a purposely provocative piece in Politico magazine this week that aims to make the case that Hillary Clinton is going to run for president for a third time in 2020.
Provocative to the sort of person who sees an article about People speculating that Clinton will run for mayor of NYC and becomes very deeply concerned that Clinton is running for mayor of NYC, perhaps.
Citing the scaling back of the Clinton Global Initiative and her plans to write a seventh book as evidence, Matt Latimer concludes: “Yes, barring some calamity, Clinton is running. And this brave columnist will go one step further. Not only will Clinton run again, she has an excellent shot at getting the Democratic Party nomination again.”
Wrong. And not just wrong on Clinton running again. But wrong on the fact that if she runs she could or would have the inside track on the Democratic nomination.
Expect to see some version of this article a few guillion times between now and the next election, no matter what Clinton does.
