A former adviser to Hillary Clinton, Mark Penn, wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Sunday claiming that Hillary Clinton would run again for President in 2020.
In the op-ed, Penn and co-author Andrew Stein wrote, “true to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.” The pair claims that Clinton will not let the “humiliating loss” to President Trump be the end of her political career.
“You can expect her to run for president once again,” they wrote, predicting her path to the presidency may be achieved under the radar saying. “maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”
Clinton has two years to plan her strategy and according to Penn and Stein, “she has to decisively 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.”
Other longtime Clinton advisors pushed back on the op-ed saying she wouldn’t run, but this is a similar tone we heard before the 2016 election when there were talks of her not running and then she popped back onto the scene with plenty of money in her political coffer. Perhaps in 2020 after the two previous failed presidential bids, the saying may ring true and the third time’s a charm.
White House adviser, Kellyanne Conway took to Twitter with a simple response to the op-ed in the Wall Street Journal which seems to welcome a Clinton presidential bid in 2020.
Dear God, please, yes. https://t.co/bmfWokusJj
