How is that possible? She didn’t beat him the first time.
She can’t be serious about running a third time, can she?
Only Hillary really knows…
But she has been dropping some hints lately, and, well, she’s refused to go away quietly after her 2016 loss.
A rumor was circulating on Twitter that Hillary was considering running again and seems to be linked to an online news outlet run by “independent journalists” but there were no sources provided.
BREAKING: Hillary Clinton ‘thinking about’ running for President in 2020, according to multiple sources

After President Trump trolled her about a rematch, she responded, “Don’t tempt me.”
Hillary and Chelsea are promoting the new book that they wrote together and during an interview with Judy Woodruff of PBS News Hour, the failed Presidential hopeful responded to Trump’s tweet moments after he sent it. “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I can beat him again,” replied Hillary.
in response to Pres Trump urging her to jump in the 2020 race, @HillaryClinton told me today "So maybe there does need to be a re-match. I mean obviously I can beat him again." before saying she's just kidding @NewsHour tonite

CNN’s Chris Cillizza said that it’s unclear what Hillary is planning on doing. She wants to run, but she’s failed twice so far. Not only that, but the race is rather crowded now with 19 other candidates.
Back in January, CNN reported that Clinton had not totally closed the door on running for president in 2020. In March, Clinton addressed that chatter.
“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,” she told CNN affiliate News 12 Westchester in New York. “I want to be sure that people understand I’m going to keep speaking out. I’m not going anywhere.”
That statement, broadly understood, could explain what Clinton has been doing over the past few weeks. She’s just speaking out as one of the most prominent Democratic politicians in the country. (The only Democrat more high-profile than Clinton is, probably, Barack Obama — and the former president has been very careful about when and why he is speaking out about Trump.)
Of course, there is always this fact to consider: Clinton would like to be president. And losing the White House to Trump — while winning the popular vote by almost 3 million — is not the sort of thing that she (or anyone) gets over.
Of course, the 19 other candidates are rather uninteresting and unlikeable.
The top three contenders all have their problems — Biden may have been compromised by his son’s sweetheart business deals with zero experience and the more he is visible on the campaign trail the older and more out-of-touch he appears; Bernie has recently suffered a heart attack and may not have the stamina to continue his campaign; and Elizabeth Warren, who has been drawing some pretty big crowds lately, is an absolute mess who is stealing Bernie’s platform while refusing to admit where the money to pay for all the “free” stuff is going to come from, and can’t seem to stop lying about her own life.
Hillary would fit right in.
Especially since she’s not backing down on anything and instead she’s ramping up her role as the icon of the Resist movement.
As a side note, during the interview, Chelsea piped up that women who put themselves out in public are still being treated “deplorably” by some people.
So, it’s a family thing to write off fellow Americans as “deplorable,” is it?

They’ve learned absolutely nothing from 2016.
The question is, if she did run, would she visit Wisconsin this time?
And when she loses, who does she have left to blame?
