Clinton 2020? It Looks Like Hillary Is Gearing Up For Another Run

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost a brutal presidential primary race in 2008 to Barack Obama, and lost the general election to Donald Trump in 2016. She
might be hoping that the third times is the charm. Rumor has it that the former Democratic presidential candidate is making plans to run against Trump again in 2020, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Clinton hasn't formally announced that she is planning to run for president again in 2020, but there is some speculation that she might be seriously considering it. One reason is that she has been hitting Trump's 'zero tolerance' policy that caused some 3,000 immigrant children to be taken from their parents. The outspoken Trump critic might be hoping to give Americans the chance to set things right once and for all, and undo the mistake she believes they made in 2016.

Clinton has been ramping up her personal appearances. She is slated to appear at the third annual Ozy Fest in New York City later this month. She also recently appeared at Oxford University.

On social media, she has also been very active, sending out emails and posting news clipping. After Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he was retiring, she posted that she was partnering with the group Demand Justice, a progressive political activist group. She repeatedly lets her supporters know that her super PAC is fighting Trump.

The 70-year-old politician has apparently been hitting people up for donations, and has raised more than $1.5 million from various groups for migrant children. Some believe it might be a precursor to hitting people up for campaign donations.

Many Democrats deny that Clinton will be ever running for anything again. After her unexpected loss in the last election, however, no clear frontrunner has emerged in the party. The Democratic primaries are expected to find a plethora of hopefuls throwing their hats into the ring, including older, established politicians like former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders to rising stars like Senator Cory Booker and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

After Trump's successful campaign, other Washington outsiders have also been toying with the idea of running, such as attorney Michael Avenatti. Mr. Avenatti is representing Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who allegedly had an affair with the president and was paid hush money.

Other possible contenders include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Starbucks founder Howard Schultz. It seems billionaire CEOs are thinking that if Trump could do it, why couldn’t they?

Even some celebrities are rumored to be toying with the idea, such as Duane 'The Rock' Johnson and Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey has said she wouldn't ever run for president because it's not in her 'DNA', but people are hoping that they can change her mind before it is too late. Democratic party supporters seem to think that the power of celebrity might be the most powerful weapon the party will be able to muster in the election. If the 2018 midterm elections go badly for liberals, then this idea will probably look even better to the Democratic Party.

If Clinton does run, she could do more harm than good to her party. A lot of people think the best thing she can do for Democrats right now is fade into the background.
