THE CLINTON COMEBACK
Media attention to Hillary Clinton has intensified, and no wonder. The former first lady, senator, secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate is ready for another round in the public arena. She has a new book: Here comes “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience” — all 464 pages of it. The new collection of essays was written by Mrs. Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton, and is published by Simon & Schuster.
Some informed observers speculate the book could be yet another indicator — along with increased public appearances and commentary — that Mrs. Clinton pines for a political comeback.
What kind of comeback? Oh, maybe the bumper stickers will read BIDEN/CLINTON 2020, WARREN/ CLINTON 2020 — or even CLINTON/CLINTON 2020. Who the heck knows?
“Word on the political street now is the rumbling that the impeachment probe launched by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be the crack that opens the door for another presidential run by Hillary Clinton. This time, the thinking goes, Hillary would be running with vindication that the 2016 election was ‘stolen’ from her and she can ascend in 2020 to reclaim the mantle for her party and the majority of the country that voted for her,” writes Nate Ashworth, editor in chief of Election Central.
“Clinton’s sallies against Trump raise a key question: is she gunning for a rematch in 2020?” asks The National Interest.
Indeed. Mrs. Clinton certainly sounds like a candidate, backing the impeachment inquiry against President Trump with gusto.
“There should be an impeachment inquiry. And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling. The most outrageously false things were said about me. And unfortunately, enough people believed them,” Mrs. Clinton told CBS News.
“I don’t care if you’re for the Democrats or you’re a Republican, when the president of the United States, who has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, uses his position to in effect extort a foreign government for his political purposes, I think that is very much what the founders worried about in high crimes and misdemeanors,” she declared.
“The president is a corrupt human tornado,” Mr. Clinton noted in a follow-up tweet. on their game.
“Our so-called representatives are constantly on defense, never advancing the ball, never trying,” he declared.
What once was: Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Some observers now wonder if she pines for a comeback as her book arrives.
