Former First Lady, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told reporters that she was under “enormous pressure” to run for the White House in 2020 Breitbart News reported.
The former first lady did not deny the possibility that she would run for the presidency when asked about her future political plans:
“I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him,” Clinton said according to Breitbart.
When asked by reporters if she was ruling out a 2020 bid for the White House, Clinton said, “I, as I say never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”
“There’s still a couple of days here,” he said on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“I don’t know whether [Clinton will] look at the Michael Bloomberg thing and say, ‘the field’s too crowded now. I missed my opportunity,’ or the opposite.
“‘Wow the field’s weak, I could come in. I could get 165,000 donors, I’m tied with [Joe] Biden in some of these early states…’ There’s still a political logic there for her,” Penn continued.
Penn also pointed to former Vice President Biden’s less than substantial lead in the primaries that have lead many to consider him a longshot to beat President Donald Trump, but more viable than other, more progressive candidates who are too far to the left.
“I think it was political logic,” Penn said earlier in the interview. “Unless this field changed, Biden is a frontrunner, but a weak frontrunner and a lot of the other candidates are too far to the left.”
