Hillary Clinton is like a bad political penny that just seems to turn up over and over again in America’s back pocket. Now, according to the Observer, it appears that Clinton and many of her never-say-die supporters may be eyeing a bid for NYC mayor. For New Yorkers this can be quite a political choice between one former presidential candidate under FBI investigation running against a mayor who is under FBI investigation.
To say that she received the presidential political campaign of the ages would be a woeful understatement. For many of her frantic Democrat supporters, a run for Queen of the Big Apple by the former Secretary of State might be excellent as a placeholder for a third shot at the presidency in 2020. New Yorkers on the other hand might not be so welcoming.
Based on a new Rasmussen poll, 58 percent of voters do not want to see the former Democratic presidential nominee run for mayor of New York City. In fact, only 23 percent of polled voters said they wanted Clinton to run, while 19 percent of voters hadn’t yet made up their mind. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for Clinton.
But what does she have to lose. After all, New York City is nearly ground zero for all things liberal, fanatically Democratic and the nation’s media home plate. All she has to do is what she does best. String together a series of meaningless platitudes that appeal to residents who have grown affixed to promises made and promises never kept.
Of course, there is that little matter of getting the current, somewhat embattled incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio to give up the reins of control, which might not be so easily accomplished if at all. After all, the mayor did take a major political hit for then presidential candidate Clinton in 2016 when the two engaged in a racist political joke at the annual New York City Press Dinner.
Hillary, who had already created a long path of racist bread crumbs trailing all the way back to her time as the nation’s first lady, could not afford to have one more racist anchor attached to her. So, when asked about the racist act, she explained, “Well, look, it was Mayor de Blasio’s skit. He has addressed it, and I will really defer to him because it is something that he’s already talked about,” she told Cosmopolitan.
If she has to throw De Blasio under the political bus in order to secure her election as mayor of the city, the Clinton machine and its legions of operatives will be resurrected to do exactly that. After all, just look at the complete disarray in which the current Democrat party finds itself. Since she ended the election as a failed candidate with no true political coattails to speak of, her party finds itself in the wilderness with no platform, goal or destination, accept for one: RESIST.
Smarter minds in the Democrat party have begun to strategically back away from the tarnished Clinton brand. Even major media types who once gave her undying support understand the days of the Clinton political regime is over. Josh Barro, who is Senior Editor for Business Insider recently tweeted, “What the country needs is for the Democrats to get past the Clintons and their toxic brand. So, the best thing for Hillary to do is nothing,” reported the Observer.
