Salon is urging Hillary Clinton to run for president again in 2020.
First of all, why? Second of all, why? Third of all, NO!
We did not want Clinton the first time around and we do not want her in the future! If we wanted to destroy our country, there are better ways to do so.
The op-ed writer, Matthew Rozsa, based his argument on a tweet from President Trump in which he claimed that Clinton should “give it another try” in three years. Obviously Trump was being facetious and was not actually calling for the lying pantsuit to try her hand at the campaign trail again.
Trump’s tweet said, “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!”

“Are you sick of Republicans? Or just right-wingers in general? Do you want to send a message to Washington that you aren’t going to buy into their racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic and classist nonsense for one second longer?” Rozsa questioned.
He continued, “Then do the very thing that Donald Trump unintentionally encouraged in a recent tweet: Encourage Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2020!”
“Her stock may be low now, but it’s been low in the past (such as when she ‘ran’ to be first lady in 1992), and it has always recovered. Arguably the big political question facing a potential Hillary 2020 campaign will be whether that bounce occurs at a fortuitous moment for her. It very well could, and wouldn’t that be a giant helping of the dish best served cold?” Rozsa concluded.
On “Fox & Friends,” Democratic strategist Robin Biro said Clinton should remove herself from the “political equation,” and focus on behind-the-scenes work like fundraising and advising candidates.
“She has pledged to bring the message to future candidates to show the mistakes that she made so that they don’t make the same mistakes going forward,” Biro said. “I respect that, I think that’s a good decision, but I think politically she’s done.”
Tezlyn Figaro, former National Justice Director for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, noted that Clinton and the Democratic National Committee rigged the election against her candidate, only to lose in the general election.
“I hope to not see more of the same next time around in 2020,” Figaro concluded “Let’s actually have people come from the grassroots to run for president and see how that works out.”
