Call me crazy, Hillary Clinton for president in 2020.

I have been watching the Rachel Maddow Show on CNBC covering the Inspector General report. I am livid and saddened by the injustice done to Hillary Clinton. We all as a nation owe her an apology for actions taken by the Trump, the GOP and the media.
Call me crazy I do not care, but I believe that if she run for president she can win this time hands down and the nation will vote for her with the exception of the deplorables. I believe under her leadership with all we now know of this corrupt president and administration the Gop will suffer their worst defeat in history and they deserve it.
Think about it seriously !!!!!

6. Heck, it's crossed my mind. Just now watching Rachel and news of the day

after being out all day, and I'm stunned at how positive Hillary looks in all of this. Complete exonerations and, as you said, the outline of injustice done to Hillary shows how incredibly strong and competent she is.

It is maddening and looking back while it was happening, it was beyond vicious. She was attacked from a foreign country, the GOP, dark money, the FBI AND the left, one of whom fabricated character assassinations against her that we know were used by the Trump campaign. She is such a strong woman.

I think she's truly done with running for office. The only way I could see it happening is if there's some last minute crisis, scandal, etc. where she'd need to step in for someone else.

country & throughout the world would be the wisest, most insightful group to usher in a future of forward planning and have the collective wisdom & knowledge to make it universal law.

And Hillary & Angela could take pleasure in squeazing Vlad & Assad & the other rogue anti-humanitarian criminal mobsters in the same compact box together. Freeing the people of their countries.
US & our Allies would never again be left vulnerable under the vision of these great leaders of peace & humanity.

This would undoubtedly be their focus & they both know how the game is played.

Hillary would be the perfect person to heal the damage done & then turn her sights on those who would so harm this world.

Yes. I would vote & campaign & chear her on again & again.

Reminding me of someone whose job involved monitoring and troubleshooting public schools. He had nothing against male principals and was speaking generally, but he told me they tended to accept and work around difficult problems, such as bad but tenured teachers. Female principals fixed the problem.

65 million people matter too. 65 million who were denied fairness of elections by a foreign well coordinated coup.

If Trump had won fair & square there wouldn't be the need for justice.
But he didn't and the nation & world suffered because of it.

She & 65 million people are damned sure owed a righting of this serious wrong.

31. Though I would vote for her again without hesitation, I do not think . . .

HRC has any interest in putting herself through the meat grinder, again.

We lost a tremendous opportunity to move the country forward in a progressive direction when the Imposter-in-Chief was installed in the WH. It was a cheat, a steal and illegitimate election. But Hillary has spoken to the situation--constitutionally there is simply no way to correct an illegitimate election and she has no interest in running again.

She deserves her life back and the opportunity to choose her own course. She is still active and vocal and has a lot of energy left to give. Just no longer in the political arena.

So yes, I'd love to see here there. But it's not going to happen. We have other candidates to choose from and the strongest will be our 2020 nominee to whom I will give my full support.

After we win the midterms, of course

56. I love Hillary and am proud of her for running such an outstanding campaign in 2016.

Ultimately, the election wasn't winnable--she was thoroughly swift-boated. And it has gotten even worse since the election has ended. So we need a new nominee. Besides, we don't even know if she was going to run for a second term if she had won.

I like Tom Steyer for president in 2020.

64. I've spoken to Party Chairs and allied SuperPac managers...

The most significant strategic error the campaign made, which biased every tactical decision afterwards was to assume that an Obama voter would become a Clinton voter, and thus nothing was done to CONFIRM that those voters were in her camp; instead, the campaign spent early months signing up new voters (admirable, but very costly in terms of volunteer time) and studying expansion of the electoral college map into places like Georgia and Arizona. As a result, when I did canvassing in Cleveland, OH the week before the Election, the voter lists which should have been completely scrubbed and including only committed Democrats, were a mess of wrong addresses and non-committal voters.

The second major mistake was to invest heavily in a national television ad campaign which focused on how bad Trump was. They spent very little on better targeted digital media, and never framed an argument about why Clinton was a better choice.

“the campaign spent early months signing up new voters (admirable, but very costly in terms of volunteer time) and studying expansion of the electoral college map into places like Georgia and Arizona. ”

Signing up new voters sounds like a great idea. You are only able to say it is a bad idea because you can Monday Morning Quarterback w hindsight.

You also ignore the impact of the Comey letter and Cambridge Analytic pushing Putin propaganda.

90. No, voter registration is a bad idea for a PRESIDENTIAL campaign...

..
Because it’s time consuming for limited return (meaning your volunteers aren’t doing something more useful, and because OTHER groups exist to register voters.

As for the Comey letter, it had impact only because the race was closer than it should have been, and because it reinforced a belief that a share of the voters already held.

95. brooklynite is correct.

Voter registration should never be done in a Presidential campaign. People are unregistered for a reason. They don't want to vote. Voter registration by a campaign is an exhausting labor intensive one on one project. So you spend all this time trying to register people who don't want to vote and guess what? They don't bother voting on election day. Voting is a habit. Not voting is also a habit and a hard one to break.

no, I think the moment has passed, we can't keep refighting the same fights.

I as a Gen X'er have lived under the shadow of the baby boomers for as long as I can remember. I'm tired of their politics, tired of fighting over Vietnam and a million other ancient histories.

Sorry to be ageist, but I'm done. Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Cory Booker, and the like are the future of the party.

Move On.

78. There would be some justice in having her as president of ALL American citizens.

And no one would be better qualified (and connected) to restore our malfunctioning government in the swiftest time-frame. It'd be downright poetic to see her signing a sheaf of executive orders, each one reversing a Trump-edict. She'd need more Democrats in the Senate and Congress, though.

But it's way too early to go there. So much can happen yet, so first things first: VOTE Democratic in November!

79. No. No. No.

It's hard to know where to start.

1. She would NOT wind hands down. Her supporters here seriously underestimate how hated she was in so many places. Those people are not going to suddenly love her.

2. She will be 73 years old in 2020.

3. We desperately need new, younger politicians in office. One of the reasons Republicans have been so successful in the past 20 years or so is that they've recruited young people to run for office. The average age of Republican House leadership is some 11 years less than Democrats. That's a lot. People have got to stop going for the old, tried and true. One of the genuinely disturbing things, in my opinion, is that certain Democrats who are well into their 70s -- or even into their 80s -- are being lauded as exemplaries of Democratic leadership. I disagree. It's time they stepped aside.

4. Probably the most important thing is that she made it quite clear that she is not interested in running again. Respect that.

5. She is a polarizing figure. Do not snap back at me that it's not her fault, or that Republicans need to accept her. It doesn't work that way. Right or wrong, she's a polarizing figure. It would make a lot more sense to nominate someone who will bring the country together.

6. Stop living in the past. Trump is President. Stop focusing on why or how he became President. Work to elect Democrats in every possible office this November, and work to elect a genuinely unifying Democrat as President in 2020. And by working to elect Democrats I mean: run for office yourself; do voter registration; campaign door-to-door for Democrats; work phone banks. In short, stop whining about Hillary's loss and move on.

I've actually been on DU since pretty much the beginning, and every single election cycle there is a huge surge for whoever the previous losing candidate was. It's disturbing that so many don't look at things like the candidate is now at least four years older, there was a reason why the candidate lost, and most of all: new people should be moving into power.

83. Al Gore deserves at least one term as President. His claim is prior to hers.

 

As a practical matter, however, it's overwhelmingly likely that neither of them will ever hold the office. Life is not a Hollywood movie where all wrongs are righted at the end.

She did win the election though by 3million and the rest was a narrow fraudulent margin. She is the real president, not that fake lunatic who along with his band of fellow traitors and crooks is destroying the government and the country.

from 25 year Republican tainting. They will of course attack that new candidate, but it won't have seeped into the American psyche that they succeeded with Hillary.

108. Absolutely not

As far as popularity with the voting public, her numbers mirror Trump, people either love her or hate her and are very set in their ways. She will always be a bad general election candidate for that reason, she automatically starts off with 50% of the country hating her.

We need someone young and fresh without those negative numbers right out of the gate.
