Donna Brazile is not impressed with Hillary Clinton.
When asked if Clinton might run again in 2020, Brazile poured cold water all over that idea.
Here's more, from Breitbart:
Former interim Democrat National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile predicts twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will ultimately rule out a third bid for the White House in 2020.
Speaking before attendees of The Wall Street Journal CEO Council on Monday, Brazile was asked whether Clinton will launch another campaign for the highest office in the land.
“No,” Brazile replied, predicting the already crowded field of potential Democrat presidential candidates could reach 30.
The remarks come after longtime Clinton aide Philippe Reines dismissed talk about another Clinton bid, telling The Hill that his former boss is “more likely to win Powerball.”
A second unnamed Clinton aide told the news outlet that a run is not in the cards. “I think it would be pretty damn clear if she was,” the aide said.
However, not everyone is convinced the 71-year-old will opt to stay on the sidelines in 2020. In a Wall Street Journal opinion-editorial last month, former Clinton pollster Mark Penn wrote the former Secretary of State is gearing up to challenge President Donald Trump, who defeated her in the 2016 presidential election.
“True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies,” wrote Penn and co-author Andrew Stein. “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”
“You can expect her to run for president once again,” the pair added. “Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”
TheHill had more:
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during an event over the weekend left the door open to a possible 2020 run, saying that even though she doesn't want to run, "I'd like to be president."
Clinton's comments come as speculation has increased over whether she will launch another bid after the midterm elections.
"Do you want to run again?" Recode’s Kara Swisher asked during a Friday night Q&A with Clinton.
"No," Clinton replied quickly, sparking laughter from the audience. But when Swisher pressed her further, she added: "I’d like to be president."
Clinton went on to say that "there’s going to be so much work to be done" after a Democrat "hopefully" wins the next presidential election.
"The work would be work that I feel very well-prepared for having been in the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State Department," she said, listing off the qualifications that she often touted during her previous run.
She added that she's not going to think about a possible run until after the midterm elections next month.
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, announced this month that they will be embarking on a 13-city tour over the next year, hosting discussions about current events and politics across the country.
Clinton in September released a new afterward for her campaign memoir, "What Happened," criticizing the Trump administration’s policies and expressing concern that the nation’s democracy is “in crisis.”
She has stepped up her presence in the national spotlight, appearing in media interviews with greater frequency to criticize the GOP and President Trump.
