Longtime Hillary Clinton advisor and insider Mark Penn caught the attention of many in Democratic circles this week, when he published a revealing op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that confirmed it is very likely Hillary Clinton runs for president for a third time.
The article is titled, “Hillary Will Run Again.” It claims that Hillary could “easily capture” the Democratic nomination in two years and set up a rematch with President Donald Trump.
“Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994,” Penn wrote.
“Mrs. Clinton has a 75% approval rating among Democrats, an unfinished mission to be the first female president, and a personal grievance against Mr. Trump,” Penn adds. “Expect Hillary 4.0 to come out swinging. She has decisively to win those Iowa caucus-goers who have never warmed up to her. They will see her now as strong, partisan, left-leaning and all-Democrat—the one with the guts, experience and steely-eyed determination to defeat Mr. Trump.”
Is the two-time loser seriously going to become the three-time loser? After her loss to President Trump she went and hid in the woods for a few months. How in the world would she face a third loss?
Maybe Mr. Penn was just desperate to get some eyeballs on his Wall Street Journal and read his op-ed. Time will tell. The candidates for 2020 are going to be shaping up in the very near future.
How do the Democrats feel about Hillary running? Are they still “with her”? Not all of them.
It's essential for all Democrats to convince Hillary Clinton not to run in 2020.

Oh boy talk about being self-entitled. The same old names democrats deny the would-be youth movement.

Hey, it looks like she still has the polls on her side:
Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, and Kamala Harris would all beat President Trump if the presidential election were held today, according to a new poll. https://t.co/kZgwh0RJsv

What a strange place for the Democratic Party. There is the old guard and then there is the young socialist movement. Then there is Bernie Sanders. It’s going to be a very interesting 2019 to see this shape up.
