Do you want HRC to enter the 2020 race for the nomination?

I have to say the BBC comment at least sounds like she is sending up a trial balloon on entering.

1. And I don't think it was a serious teaser - my evidence?

Her statement of "many, many people" sounded like deliberate provocation to Trump.

2. I don't want her to enter and have seen nothing that makes me think she is going to.

The number one promoter of her getting in is H A Goodman. True story.

While I don't want her to jump in I would cheer her if she did. She is probably the most qualified person out there right now. I'm not going to poo poo that.

I think this would be an equally interesting poll question "Did you want Steyer to jump in?" Results would probably be just as lopsided. Thankfully, that's not how any of this works.

3. Hillary is on a book tour, she is trolling the pundits. She hasn't done

anything concrete to prepare for a presidential run. Filing deadlines loom and she hasn't filed in any of the primary contests, she's not fund raising.

She is however getting her opinions aired and selling books.

Even that moron Chris Cillizza sees it

What, exactly, is Hillary Clinton doing?

4. I think she should do whatever the fuck she wants.

She has more than earned that right. More so than those who gnash their teeth at the mere thought.

Of course it isn’t going to happen, but I’d vote for her in a heartbeat if we were to be so lucky as to have another chance. And I bet she would win by millions of votes. AGAIN.

8. I'm with you

If she decides to run, I'm 100% behind her. As you said, she's earned the right do whatever she wants.

It's interesting that no one bats an eye about Sanders and Biden, who ran unsuccessfully in the past, and Beto and Buttigieg, et al, who have considerably less experience than she does, running but she's not supposed to run because "she had her chance."

Screw that. If Hillary Clinton wants to run, she should run. And I have no doubt that if she did, she'd kick Trump's butt. And if she doesn't want to run, she shouldn't, but she still can do and say whatever she likes without being told to go away and be quiet.

5. My inclination is No, but...

I think she would be one of the weakest nominees we could possibly put up. Her favorabilities and her polling against Trump is actually worse today than it was when she ran in 2016, and worse than other options we already have.

That said, the devil in me says that her entrance into the primary would probably siphon more support from Biden than from anyone else, and that could help my preferred candidate, as well as other candidates I prefer to Biden.

But nah, it's not worth the risk that she could possibly win the nomination.

6. Yup, I agree that she would be a liability

Her running only helps Trump, she needs to stay on the sideline. Her best way of helping would be coordinating DNC fundraisers and staying far from the spotlight

10. No (prefer Sanders or Warren), but a part of me wishes she got another chance..

just because she is the rightful President now. 3 million more votes! Russian interference raising many questions. Something like a 50,000 difference combined in 3 states pales in comparison to 3 million votes!

the time, effort, and preparation she demonstrated during her career and run for office. She was truly the most qualified person to ever run for president and, IMO, she was robbed.

That being said, the 25+ years of GOP attacks against her have taken a toll. I met a woman who was born in 1992 who HATED her. Huh? You were a baby during Clinton's term... But that just goes to show how effective the GOP attack machine has been, not just amongst repubs, but many on the left have internalized the hatred of "all things Hillary" as well.

So, no, I don't think she should run again, even though I'd be honored to vote for her again.
