So, are we done with this now?
Hillary Clinton is not running for president in 2020.
“The trajectory is to do what she did in 2018 and more,” a Clinton “friend” told The Hill. “I think that she is in a position to help the party come together, and depending on how things play out, that is something that she can do sooner than when she secured the nomination in 2016. If Democratic voters and activists start to coalesce around someone early, she can play an important role in bringing candidates together around that individual.”
So, barring a 2024 run, it’s likely that Hillary Clinton is never going to be the president of the United States.
Phew! That was close!
With Michael Bloomberg out of the race too, it looks like Joe Biden is circling, but the Clinton apparatus is also friendly to Kamala Harris, whose political ambitions are basically managed by her sister, who worked for Hillary. The Bernie Sanders wing is probably not happy about California moving its primary up to March — a move that benefits Kamala. Elizabeth Warren is an afterthought.
Is Beto back from the dentist yet?
Although Democrats seem to think that Joe Biden could be a formidable force in the 2020 presidential race, evidence culled from his own statements and public actions suggests otherwise.
Most recently, Biden disgraced himself and his party by calling the United States of America an “embarrassment” while speaking in Munich.
It is pretty clear, based on the swift and punishing criticism of Biden’s remark, that the Democrat would be very damaged by this clip if he chooses to go forward and run in 2020. Republican ads would obviously be merciless.
“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right. The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are,” Biden stated.
“Joe Biden’s the real embarrassment, not America,” said the Boston Heraldheadline.
President Trump signed an executive order ending the separation of illegal migrant children at the border from their adult supervisors — many of whom are human traffickers. The Obama administration, which Biden was a leading part of at least for public appearances, was responsible for this practice.
