Columnist: Hillary's Excuses for Election Loss Point to One Thing – a 2020 Run
In an interview last week, Hillary Clinton said that she took responsibility for her election loss, but she went on to blame FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference for helping Donald Trump win the presidency.
New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin thinks Clinton's excuses point to one thing – a 2020 presidential run.
"There's an old saying in politics that once you've been bitten by the presidential bug, there are only two cures: death or election," Goodwin said.
He pointed to a recent Politico report about Clinton's desire to jump back into the political fray.
The former secretary of state is reportedly building a new political group – called Onward Together – to fund organizations working on the resistance to Trump’s agenda.
"It's very much about co-opting the Trump resistance," Goodwin said. "She's going to raise money to fund the resistance, she says. Now that's going to give her an enormous amount of power and control over the resistance, over the money."
He said the Democratic Party is "demoralized and divided," without a clear leader, and he thinks Clinton very much wants to fill that role.
"If she's the leader of the Democratic Party, do you think she's going to do this for Andrew Cuomo or Cory Booker's presidential campaign?" Goodwin said. "So, ultimately, I think she's setting herself up to be the 2020 nominee."
