Hillary Clinton's recent moves spark 2020 speculation


Conservative columnist Michael Goodwin has speculated that Hillary Clinton may be signaling a possible presidential run in 2020.

In a recent op-ed for the New York Post, he wrote, “Hillary Clinton is up to something.”

He then describes the several emails she has sent out to her supporters over the last month including one blasting Trump over his policy separating undocumented kids from their parents at the border.

Goodwin says she has also been promoting the work of her diversity-focused group “Onward Together” which he calls “a Clinton 2020 campaign vehicle in waiting.”

And while he accuses her of being a “terrible candidate” whose time has passed, he argues that the lack of a frontrunner among a crowded field of potential candidates and the advanced age of popular Democrats Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders all factor into “why she can’t be ignored.”

In fact, Clinton was the runner-up to Biden in a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll from last month which asked registered Democratic voters about their pick for their party’s 2020 presidential nominee.

Sanders and fellow U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren took third and fourth place, respectively.

Despite the speculation, Clinton has declared that her bids for elected office are over, stating in September, “I am done with being a candidate.”

However, she vowed to remain an active participant nonetheless, saying: “I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.”
