Like an incurable case of genital Herpes, the Clintons just won’t go away.
In what as probably the least surprising news that you would ever hear, Hillary Clinton will make another run at the presidency in 2020 as she looks to avenge the self-inflicted wounds of her stunning loss to political newcomer and billionaire businessman Donald Trump in 2016.
The news comes via a Wall Street Journal op-ed by Mark Penn, a former Clinton pollster/advisor who predicts that Hillary Clinton 4.0 is about to be unleashed as a “progressive firebrand” who will “fight this out until the last dog dies” which sounds like she’s ready to go scorched earth to avenge her humiliating defeat and exact a terrible revenge against those who voted against her.

Via Politico, “Former Clinton adviser says Hillary will run in 2020”:
Two-time Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will mount a third bid for the White House, longtime Clinton adviser Mark Penn wrote in an op-ed published Sunday by The Wall Street Journal, predicting that the former first lady and secretary of state is readying a “Hillary 4.0″ campaign for 2020.
In the Journal op-ed, Penn, an adviser and pollster to the Clintons from 1995-2008, and former New York City politician Andrew Stein wrote that in a 2020 run, Clinton would reinvent herself “as a liberal firebrand.” The twice-failed presidential candidate would not “let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House,” they wrote.
Another longtime Clinton aide, Philippe Reines, told POLITICO last month that he thought it was odd Clinton’s name wasn’t “in the mix” of potential 2020 contenders, though he said more recently that he couldn’t think of a Democrat who would be able to successfully challenge President Donald Trump.
A Clinton declaration isn’t likely to go over very well with the aspiring candidates like Cory “Spartacus” Booker, identity politics queen Kamala Harris, socialist Bernie Sanders or demagogue Elizabeth Warren but Penn dismisses them all as lightweights and losers.
Via The Wall Street Journal:
The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show. But they revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments. She will trounce them. Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins. Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run, and Joe Biden will never be able to take her on.
Don’t pay much attention to the “I won’t run” declarations. Mrs. Clinton knows both Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama declared they weren’t running, until they ran. She may even skip Iowa and enter the race later, but rest assured that, one way or another, Hillary 4.0 is on the way.
Clinton has refused to honor the American tradition of a loser simply going away and letting the victor do their job but instead has agitated the Resistance, stirred the pot of racial animosity, tacitly endorsed mob violence and conducted herself as the head of a government in exile.
If this is shocking to anyone then you haven’t been paying attention.
