It can be said with certainty that former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is has at least considered yet another run for the Oval Office in 2020.
It can also be intimated from her recent actions that this speculation is continuing to this day, as the retired former First Lady has had a sudden uptick in her public schedule, coinciding with the ebb and flow of the 2020 Democratic field.
Now, after an appearance on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show this week, political observers are noting that there may be some significance here that went previously unnoticed.
There was hardly a pretense she was there to promote the book she co-wrote with daughter Chelsea, long ago a bestseller.
As those who listen to the show know, Stern publicly begged Hillary to appear during the 2016 campaign. After Donald Trump won, Stern said one guest shot could have moved the needle her way.
“If she had come on the show …,” Stern mused in May. “The way I helped Donald was I let him come on and be a personality. Whether you liked him or not … people related to him as a human being.”
Hillary, it’s clear, was after exactly that — relatability, long her white whale.
And, in perhaps her most tacit admission regarding her 2016 loss, Clinton even hinted that her appearance with Stern would have had, and could still make, a difference.
“I think you were right,” she said of his repeated requests that she appear on his show in 2016. “I did not prioritize the media the way I should have. I think that was a miscalculation. I really do.”
Seeing that she’s prioritized the media a great deal in recent weeks, one can only conclude that the Democrats could soon be “with her” again.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
