Hillary Clinton negotiating to be running mate of Democratic presidential nominee, says report
Hillary is set to either join Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg or the last candidate in the race left standing.
Hillary Clinton is reportedly in negotiations to contest in the 2020 presidential elections, via a Democratic ticket as vice president, political and communications consultant Douglas MacKinnon alleged in a column in The Hill, published on Saturday. The report claimed that she " might enter the arena" incase the negotiations go through.
The author, who is a former writer for the White House for presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush said that if the Democrats did not choose their nominee in the first round of voting, Hillary is set to either join Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, former New York City mayor, or the last candidate in the race left standing.
"I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position," he said. Moreover, Hillary had made it clear in interviews that she would like to go against President Trump once again. "Obviously I can beat him again," Clinton joked on 'PBS NewsHour' back in October 2019. She was also in the spotlight for her recent documentary 'Hillary'. She had been laying low, away from the public eye for a while but then grabbed the limelight after weighing in on the upcoming elections and Dem candidates, particularly Bernie Sanders for not uniting the Dems.
“Given her ego, would Hillary Clinton settle for being vice president when she twice was within striking distance of being president? The answer is an emphatic yes,” MacKinnon wrote, adding that those close to the former secretary of state said that she still had faith in impacting the country positively.
"She would add the gravitas, delegates and, eventually, millions of votes needed to get them over the finish line on Nov. 5. I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position. If I were in Trump’s world, this scenario would send chills down my spine," he wrote.
