Trump winning the election, It takes a special kind of mind that views Trump as likable.
Unlikable vs the detestable.
She should have won it easily, but lost to a prick. What does that say about her though. She felt entitled to receive the nomination because her last name is Clinton. She is very self-serving, of course Trump is too. Hillary has been angling for the presidency her whole life. Having a few families monopolize the upper echelons of power smacks of developing world politics....

Clinton treated 2016 as a coronation rather than an election. Even now she's learned nothing. No introspection, no acceptance, just forever doubling down.

If everything had gone to script we would've two families - the Bushes and the Clintons - ruling America for thirty years.

Hillary Clinton says she would run again in 2020 if she thought she could win, report says
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a9166556.html

Hillary Clinton has told people privately that she would consider joining the 2020 Democratic primary, but only if she thought she could win.

The private conversations were aired publicly in a new report from The New York Times, which spoke with several people involved with Democratic politics, many of whom are concerned that the current crop of candidates is less than ideal.

Anything of your own to add beyond merely copying and pasting from another website?

Says more about the American electorate. Satire with apologies to Brecht.

You can see her lane though (or at least I can see what she's thinking)

She's expecting Biden to implode. The other centrists (Mayor Pete and Klobuchar) both have their issues and may not be able to gain traction. At that point out comes Clinton and runs as the savior of the center.

Theoretically, She could grab the nomination at the convention after the 1st ballot is split between Warren and the 2 above, since then the Superdelegates (which basically nominated her last time)are brought back into play on the 2nd ballot..

I hate to say it, but I could see that happening. It will also give Trump a 2nd term.

Biden has now apologised for calling the Clinton impeachment a lynching.

Just shows that anyone can err when speaking in public then and I didn't know that the word lynching was now PIC either.

Given Trump’s track record of racist comments you’re stretching credulity if you think he didn’t choose that word very deliberately.

Please try to keep up Sherlock.
"Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized to a largely Native American audience for “harm I have caused” after years of occasionally identifying herself as Native American, as well as for releasing a DNA test last year that she said supported her ancestry claims. "
