If you’ve been holding onto your “Hillary Clinton for President” bumper stickers they’ve just become like expired coupons, as she has formally announced that she will not make a bid to seek the presidency in 2020.
It’s official: No 2020 run for Clinton
For those of you expecting to see another Hillary versus Bernie showdown in 2020, it appears that that scenario will not come to fruition. So you can go ahead and throw out all of your “Hillary for President” buttons and bumper stickers, as they will be as worthless as expired coupons.
After two unsuccessful bids seeking the presidency, apparently, Hillary Clinton doesn’t believe that the third time will be a charm.
It’s a surprising turn of events, especially how during her book deal she consistently spoke about how she was undermined by a variety of sources, including Sanders, which prevented her victory. Especially with all the animosity towards President Trump and Democrats taking control of the House, one may have thought that she might have felt the environment was right for another run.
But speaking to News 12 Westchester, the former first lady in Secretary of State told the news agency that she does not plan to run for president next year.
However, she told the news agency that she is “not going anywhere.”
What’s next for Hillary?
If she isn’t “going anywhere,” then what does Hillary plan to do next?
“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,” Clinton told News 12 Westchester.
What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me, Clinton added, “and I’m also thinking hard about how do we start talking and listening to each other again.”
“We’ve just gotten so polarized,” Clinton continued. “We’ve gotten into really opposing camps unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my adult life.”
