Why a Rebranded, Reinvigorated “Clinton 4.0” Would Be Trump’s Dream in 2020

Two-time Democrat candidate for president Hillary Clinton, who lost the primaries to Barack Obama in 2008 and was defeated at a later stage in 2016 by Donald Trump, has been dropping hints that she may run again in 2020. Here’s why such a move would be a disaster for the Democrats.

“I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, [Clinton] was telling people that look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying ‘look, I’m not closing the doors to this,” CNN contributor Jeff Zeleny said, speaking on CNN’s Inside Politics on Sunday.

In fact, the Washington, DC rumour mill has been swirling around Clinton since last October, after the 71-year-old former Democratic candidate said that she’d “like to be president,” and wouldn’t give a definitive answer on whether or not she would run for a third time.

President Trump, who crushed Clinton in the electoral college despite losing the popular vote in 2016, told Fox News that he “liked” Clinton for the Democratic nominee and that he would be “very happy” to run against her again.

Others, including former senior Clinton adviser Philippe Reines, have shot down the rumours, saying that Clinton was “more likely to win Powerball,” adding that “it would be pretty dam clear” by now if she was running. Terry McAuliffe, former co-chair of President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, similarly suggested that he was “confident” that Hillary was “done running for elected office.”

But that hasn’t stopped some diehard Hillary pundits from backing her.

Late last year, Former Clinton advisor Mark Penn and Democratic ex-New York city council president Andrew Stein penned an explosive op-ed for the Wall Street Journal entitled “Hillary Clinton Will Run Again,” confidently predicting that by “reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand,” this “Hillary Clinton 4.0,” as they call her, “will easily capture the 2020 nomination.”
