(DCWatchdog.com) – Last evening, in an announcement that delighted conservatives and disappointed some — but not all — liberals, former Secretary of State and United States Senator Hillary Clinton said she will not be running for president.
As Fox News recounts today in “Hillary Clinton: I’m not running for president again“:
“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton firmly declared that she will not be running for president again following her two failed bids in 2008 and 2016.
“There has been growing political chatter over whether Clinton, who continues to be outspoken on current events and is now promoting her new “Gutsy” docuseries on Apple TV+, would seek a third White House bid as Democrats continue mulling if President Biden should seek re-election in 2024.” [emphasis added]
Clinton wants to kill that chatter.
“‘Would you ever run for president again?’ CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell asked.
“‘No, no,’ Clinton responded. ‘But I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions.'” [emphasis added]
Then she took a shot at former President Donald Trump.
“‘What if Donald Trump runs again?‘ O’Donnell followed.
“‘He should be soundly defeated,’ Clinton said. ‘It should start in the Republican Party – grow a backbone! Stand up to this guy! And heaven forbid if he gets the nomination, he needs to be defeated roundly and sent back to Mar-a-Lago.'” [emphasis added]
