Hillary Clinton Says Shes Deluged With Requests to Run in 2020

Hillary Clinton says shes “deluged” with requests to run for the presidency for the third time and declined to rule out a bid for 2020.

Clinton, 72, ran twice, losing in the general election to President Donald Trump in 2016 and in the Democratic primary to former President Barack Obama in 2008.

Appearing on a BBC show last week, Clinton said she was going to “have to make up my mind really quickly” if she was going to join the 2020 race. Several state filing deadlines have already passed, including New Hampshire.

“The rumor mill is flying that you could step back into the ring,” host Graham Norton told Clinton.

“I hear that. I have been deluged the last few weeks with thinking about doing that, but right now Im not at all planning that,” she replied.

Asked to rule out a bid, she said, “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

The former secretary of state has conducted a number of interviews in recent months, most with her daughter Chelsea Clinton hyping their new book.

At a New York City event in early November, she mused that she “wouldve been a really good president.”

“I think the last election was deeply flawed and that there were so many unprecedented problems in that election that its almost hard to make sense of. But Im out here traveling around with my daughter, and shes still nursing her newest baby, so Ive got my grandson with me, so, you know, life is pretty good,” she said.
