Hillary: Many People Want Me to Run Again, But It’s Not In My Plans
Rather than slimming down, the field for the 2020 Democratic nomination seems to be growing. Former New York City mayor has taken some steps towards joining the race. Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is also reportedly feeling out a run for the nomination.
One person who’s name keeps being thrown out as a possibility is the Democrat’s 2020 candidate, Hillary Clinton. While speaking with BBC radio, Clinton said that while she is frequently asked to run, but that making a bid is not in her plans.
The former Secretary of State would not say that she would never run for the White House again. “I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” said Clinton.
She continued, “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.”
The former First Lady said she often thinks about what she would do in office, but doesn’t envy the next President. “Look, I think all the time about what kind of president I would’ve been and what I would’ve done differently and what I think it would’ve meant to our country and the world,” she told the BBC. “So of course I think about it, I think about it all the time. Whoever wins next time is going to have a big task trying to fix everything that’s been broken.”
The next Democratic debate will take place on November 20th in Atlanta, Georgia.
