The Hill is out with a OPINION CONTRIBUTOR piece that speculates about Hillary Clinton being open to taking the Vice Presidency with a either moderate/establishment guys Joe Biden or Mike Bloomberg….
Clinton HAS brought herself back in the political spotlight essentially campaigned against Bernie Sanders these days….
Hold on your seats folks if this trial ballon IS the case…
A number of people in politics, the media and elsewhere are openly speculating that if Democrats wind up with a “brokered convention,” with no strong or viable nominee evident, Hillary Clinton might enter the arena as the “savior” who could unite the delegates and go on to defeat President Donald Trump.
Clinton herself seemed to throw shade at that theory during an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival. When asked about the “urge” to beat Trump, the former Democratic nominee said: “Yeah, I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.”
Several politically savvy Democrats have told me that “everything” may be a much more plausible and powerful scenario.
That is, Clinton and/or her team could be negotiating with former vice president Joe Biden, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg or the last candidate standing to join the ticket as vice president. She would add the gravitas, delegates and, eventually, millions of votes needed to get them over the finish line on Nov. 5. I am assured that Clinton is on every short list for that position.
If I were in Trump’s world, this scenario would send chills down my spine.
There is no doubt that the former first lady, New York senator and secretary of State once again is raising her profile and stepping back into the spotlightto re-engage in political discussions.
One such spotlight was provided by that Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. There, aside from commenting on her presidential “urge,” Clinton not only promoted the incredibly flattering four-part Hulu documentary about her, titled “Hillary” — which premiered, coincidently, just 10 days before the Iowa caucus — but she also attended the debut of a documentary about the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.
The first event was tailor-made to allow her to shine. The other gave her a timely platform to bash President Trump on a number of topics…
