Is Hillary Clinton angling to become vice president?

A number of people in politics, the media and elsewhere are openly speculating that if Democrats wind up with a “brokered convention,” with no strong or viable nominee evident, Hillary Clinton might enter the arena as the “savior” who could unite the delegates and go on to defeat President Donald Trump.

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/480523-is-hillary-clinton-angling-to-become-vice-president

Clinton herself seemed to throw shade at that theory during an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival. When asked about the “urge” to beat Trump, the former Democratic nominee said, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome. And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.”

If Biden/Hillary is the ticket, Hillary becomes nominee in 2024!

5. My fantasy dream last night...

Biden is elected President and gives Hunter, Jill (Secretary of Education of course), Hillary, Bill, Chelsea, Michelle and Barack positions in his administration.

Oh, and Justice Roberts has an unfortunate health issue and Joe gives a nod to Kamala for a justice.

Hey, it's been done now so open the floodgates! The GOP won't be able to cry foul.

24. Bill or Hillary would be great

at Secretary of State. But, I suspect neither would want the job at this time in their lives.

I say Michelle Obama for SCOTUS

18. The article is the opinion of a Republican hack,

who it trying to sow doubt and division among Democrats. If you want to believe it's anything more than that, you go right ahead. I'm not going to waste any more of my time on this nonsense. Good day.

17. Did you read the article?

It does not say she is running for VP...it clearly says she may be angling for a brokered convention,
and it is at that time she could be invited to be VP to unite the party.

21. We need to move on from the Clintons.

The Obamas, the Bidens.

We need new ideas and new faces, especially against someone like Trump who I an expert at using any tiny negative about someone and blowing it out of proportion.

The less baggage and ammo they have to use against our candidate the better, and Hilary has a lot.

22. The """baggage""" Hillary had has now been exposed as conservative propaganda that it always was.

Fellow Democrats should not be amplifying conservative and Russian propaganda attacks on our candidates. If there was even an inkling of actual corruption or criminality with Hillary, you can be damn sure that Trump's DOJ would go after her. And yet they got nothing, because there never was anything. It was all just ginned up stories to trash her in the eyes of the electorate -- the same shit that they are now doing with Joe Biden.

23. I know that...you know that...the far right Repubes know that...the general population does not

Ultimately they are the ones that decide elections as we are always going to vote Dem and the far right Repubes are always going to vote Repube...but that 40% in the middle that can potentially be swayed either way and are uneducated and uninvolved are just making their decisions based on all the propaganda whether it is true or not. Hilary had an unfortunate amount of things they could bring up that that 40% in the middle thought was impactful.

Same thing with Biden now too. We know the Ukraine stuff is fake, but the more they keep saying it and making people think there is a scandal there, the more it sticks. The damage to Biden has already been done, the same way it was to Hilary.

25. If they don't know it, it's because people like yourself continue giving credence to it...

...rather than debunking it like you should, as a Democrat and presumably someone that is for truth and what's right as opposed to someone that relents and continues to propagate propaganda.

If they can successfully slander a candidate with lies, they can successfully slander any of our candidates with lies. It is up to us to push back on those lies and expose them for what they are.

And her name is HILLARY...

don't think she's a viable candidate now. I also don't think we're going to have a brokered convention. RELAX people. This is the FIRST CAUCUS tonight! That's not even the first qtr. of the game yet.

29. The MF and his minions

want nothing more than to run against HRC again in 2020. He will be running against her even if she never leaves her house for the next year. He won't be able to help himself during his hate rallies...he will mention her name at every single one. His freak job followers won't know if she is running or not...this is the same crowd that believed HRC was running a pedophile ring out of a pizza parlor. They're idiots. No. She isn't running for VP - why the hell would she do that?
