Could we still end up with another Hillary Clinton presidential nomination? Perhaps. The embattled politician is mincing a lot of words, but what she isn’t doing is ruling out going head to head with Donald Trump once again, in a war for the White House.
Even though Hillary has already missed the filing deadline for the New Hampshire primary, she says she will have to make up her mind about running for president quickly. During an appearance on Britain’s Graham Norton Show, Clinton was again asked about her presidential aspirations while being quizzed as to why she included a story about a U.S. women’s soccer star who retired on the tagline “forget me.”
Hillary said the intention of the words were to “make way for new people” and “get off the stage.” Those words of advice are for everyone else except Hillary Clinton it would appear. When asked by Norton, “Are you saying ‘Forget me’ now?” – Hillary responded, “Not yet.” She then said she was aware of the presidential rumor mill and had been “deluged” with questions about running again.
“Right now, I’m not, at all, uh, you know, planning that I’d have to make up my mind really quickly,” she said, “because it’s moving very fast.” Back in October, Clinton’s adviser Dick Morris insisted that Hillary will become the Democratic nominee because she believes “she was put on Earth to be President.”
“Make no mistake. She wants it,” said Morris. “She’s planning on it. She’ll do everything she can to achieve it.”
Earlier that month, Clinton teased another presidential run, despite having already failed twice, telling PBS Newshour, “Obviously I can beat him again,” according to Summit News.
Clinton has also “felt pressure” to run for president and raised funds to do so. That doesn’t mean she’ll join the race, but being so late to the game also doesn’t mean she intends to sit this one out.
