2020 Presidential Run Not Being Ruled Out By This Campaign Manager

Hillary Clinton was thought to be a shoe-in for the 2008 elections, until a young junior senator swooped in and stole the show. In 2016, she and her supporters thought her win was inevitable, only to have her opponent, Donald Trump, snatch victory out of her hands with an electoral college landslide that rocked the nation. Could it be third time is a charm for Clinton? According to her former campaign manager, a third run isn't being ruled out.

Clinton has been a first lady, a U.S. Senator and Secretary of State. Many wondered after her failed bid for the White House where someone with her resume would go from here. Some have suggested she consider running for mayor or governor of New York, but it almost seems like a step backward for the most prominent woman in U.S. politics. No one has come closer to winning the presidential election, only to lose. Clinton won millions of votes more than Trump, but he had the electoral college votes.

Clinton's 2016 campaign manager Robby Mook spoke with MSNBC's Greta van Susteren about whether or not Ms. Clinton will try again in 2020.

"I think what happens right now, we've got to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016 then we can start worrying about the next cycle," said Mook. "But we've got to make sure that this cannot happen again in two years or four years to anybody else."

Clinton proved she hasn't gone into retirement yet. She showed up in Scranton, Pennsylvania on St. Patrick's Day to deliver a rousing speech, and claimed she was ready to 'come out of the woods'. This was her first major appearance since losing in November.

"I’m like a lot of my friends right now. I have a hard time watching the news, I’ll confess," she said. "I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this."

Mook wouldn't elaborate on what Clinton meant, but it could be her first step on the 2020 campaign trail.

In 2020, Clinton will be 73 years old, which would make her the oldest candidate to ever run for president.
