Has the Democratic Party not already had enough of Hillary Clinton.
The former First Lady has largely been seen as a persona non grata among liberal voters, stemming from her rigging of the 2016 primaries against rival candidate Bernie Sanders of Vermont. When news of her cheating scandal broke via Wikileaks, a wide swath of voters turned their backs on the seemingly corrupt party, paving the way for the Donald Trump presidency.
From that moment forward, a great many Democrats simply hoped that Clinton would go away.
Instead, the former Secretary of State has steadily been interjecting herself into the 2020 primaries, but is stopping shy of possibly accepting a veep nod from an ongoing campaign.
“Well, that’s not going to happen, but no,” Clinton told Ellen DeGeneres, who pressed her by saying “you don’t know that’s not going to happen.”
“I think I do,” Clinton responded. When DeGeneres asked her again about the possibility, Clinton indicated it was a possibility and referenced then-President-Elect Obama‘s request for her to be his Secretary of State in 2008.
“I was shocked. I had no idea he was going to ask me and I turned him down twice. He said, ‘Look the economy is in free fall, it’s a catastrophe — I’ve got to focus on that. We’ve got problems around the world, you go focus on that.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m happy where I am — you get somebody else. I’m sure there’s good people around,'” she said.
Clinton couldn’t help herself from insulting President Trump later in the interview, stating her belief that No. 45 may be a bit too emotional for his position.
