[Ed. – 2020 is bringing the cray-cray, for sure. This may well be nothing – but the fact is, we all know, after the last three years, that it could be something. Hillary is, after all, younger than Biden (if not necessarily likely to outlive him). Let the Arkancide jokes begin.]
A number of people in politics, the media and elsewhere are openly speculating that if Democrats wind up with a “brokered convention,” with no strong or viable nominee evident, Hillary Clinton might enter the arena as the “savior” who could unite the delegates and go on to defeat President Donald Trump.
Clinton herself seemed to throw shade at that theory during an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival. When asked about the “urge” to beat Trump, the former Democratic nominee said, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome. …”
Several politically savvy Democrats have told me that … Clinton and/or her team could be negotiating with former Vice President Joe Biden, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg or the last candidate standing to join the ticket as vice president. … I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position.
