Will Hillary Run Again?: 4 Quotes

1. Yes — “Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”
-Mark Penn and Andrew Stein, The Wall Street Journal.

2. No – “Philippe Reines, who served as a senior adviser to Clinton at the State Department, tells Politico in an interview that he thinks it is “unlikely” that Clinton would mount a 2020 bid, but cautioned that it was not an impossibility. ‘It’s somewhere between highly unlikely and zero,’ he tells in the interview, ‘but it’s not zero.’”
-John Bowden, The Hill.

3. Yes — “Two-time Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will mount a third bid for the White House, longtime Clinton adviser Mark Penn wrote in an op-ed published Sunday by The Wall Street Journal, predicting that the former first lady and secretary of state is readying a “Hillary 4.0” campaign for 2020.”
-Caitlin Oprysko, Politico.

4. No — “This particular prophecy, for want of a better term, is blindingly stupid. As far as I’m concerned, Hillary Clinton has the right to do whatever she wants. But she’s not going to run for president again, in part because she understands that her fellow Democrats have almost exactly zero interest in rerunning the last excruciating contest.”
-Ed Kilgore, New York Magazine.
