Over the past few weeks, rumors have swirled that the two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is testing the waters for yet another potential presidential run in 2024. Now, the conservative journalist Miranda Devine is saying that Clinton is “practically begging” Democrats to allow her to run for them again.
“I think it tells you more about the state of the Democratic Party than it does about poor America, that they are even considering Hillary Clinton, that she isn’t just being laughed out of school for popping her head up above the parapet, from so desperately and so obviously having her hand up and saying ‘pick me, take me!'” Devine told Fox News.
The master class, so-called, that she gave the other day that people pay $20 a month to watch, in which she read her undelivered victory speech and then cried at the end of it with no real tears, that was her begging the American people and begging the Democratic Party to look at her as the alternative to Joe Biden, because after all, she is younger than him,” she added.
Devine was referring to Clinton breaking down as she read what would have been her victory speech in the 2016 election, had she not lost to Donald Trump. She’s been open about the fact that she was so sure she’d win that she did not write a concession speech.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
“It’s going to be a nightmare,” Devine concluded. “And really, the subtext is that only Hillary Clinton, who was so narrowly cheated of victory against Donald Trump in 2016, only she can save America. And that is her shtick. She won’t stop – she will do it until her last breath, she wants to vindicate herself.”
Given President Joe Biden’s advanced age and grim unpopularity, many have questioned whether or not he will even try to run again for reelection. If Clinton runs again, there could potentially be a 2016 rematch between her and Trump.
“Are we going to give in to all these lies and this disinformation and this organized effort to undermine our rule of law and our institutions, or are we going to stand up to it?” Clinton recently said. This was yet another statement that appeared to some to be laying the foundation for another run against Trump.
“Hillary Clinton always seemed to believe the mantle of ‘First Female President’ was her birthright,” conservative pundit Joe Concha recently wrote for The Hill.
Clinton may think the presidency is “her birthright,” but if she runs again, she shouldn’t be surprised if she comes up miserably short for a third time.
