One thing seems clear about two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton: She always seems to resurface even if nobody wants her to.
For that reason, many political insiders have speculated that she would mount yet another White House campaign ahead of the 2024 election cycle.
The former first lady shot down such rumors this week, however.
According to Yahoo:
While speaking with the Financial Times, the former first lady and US senator said that she expected President Joe Biden to stand for reelection in two years. When asked if she could view herself launching a campaign — after unsuccessfully challenging Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2008 and losing the general election to Donald Trump in 2016 — Clinton quickly waved off such a proposition.
“No, out of the question,” she said.
She continued: “First of all, I expect Biden to run. He certainly intends to run. It would be very disruptive to challenge that.”
Biden has said publicly and privately said that he intends to run for reelection in 2024.
The thought of a rematch between Clinton and Donald Trump in two years has sparked plenty of attention from pundits across the political spectrum.

Although she seemed to rule out another campaign against her 2016 rival, Clinton couldn’t resist taking a jab at Donald Trump.
As Just the News reported:
Though taking herself out of the running, Clinton took the chance to take a shot at her former 2016 rival, suggesting financial gain would be the motive if Trump ran again.
“I think if he can, he’s going to run again,” Clinton said. “Follow the money with Trump — he’s raised about $130 million sitting in his bank account that he used to travel around, to fund organizing against elections.
”I don’t know who will challenge him in the Republican primary,” she added.
Clinton is still facing serious questions about her 2016 campaign’s effort to smear Trump.
