(Great news if true!): 'I Am Done With Being a Candidate.' Hillary Clinton Rules Out Another Campaign

'I Am Done With Being a Candidate.' Hillary Clinton Rules Out Another Campaign

Hillary Clinton says she's ruled out another run for office, but you don't expect her to leave the political stage entirely.

"As an active politician, it's over," Clinton told Jane Pauley in a Sunday interview on CBS Sunday Morning. "I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake."

Clinton told Pauley she was so certain of victory over the eventual winner, President Donald Trump, that she had only drafted a victory speech, not a concession speech. She added that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had purchased the home next door to their Chappaqua, New Yrok property as a location for White House staff and security.

*

In a December survey taken of the Democratic presidential prospects for 2020, a staggering 62 percent of respondents did not want Hillary Clinton to run for president again.

Oh please oh please oh please.

But the old baggage says she's not going away because the country is still in danger from some pretty bad guys. Well she's at the top of my bad guy list. Always. And she's got a documented history of lying about everything, big or small, so I seriously hope she learned a lesson when she found out 62% want her to back to the woods and she's just not trying to make 62% of the country happy.

She's going to have to find some way to stay in the limelight because she loves all the attention.

I thought it was terrible the way she upstaged Bernie the other night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with her little "fly by" cameo appearance.

in that quote above are the detailed, meticulous plans set forth for her certain future coronation. Buying the property to serve as her home WH??? WOW! I shouldn't be floored, but I am! This is the final nail in the coffin that THEY ARE IN CHARGE of everything that has anything to do with them maintaining power and the money needed to remain in that realm. I'm not just referring to the Clintons, I mean tptb.

What a shock that the people elected Herr Drumpf, but they've got him reigned in. Bannon might be a fly in the ointment for a short while, but he'll soon be gagged, or worse, ignored. They dodged a bullet with Bernie because he would have worked, with the people behind him, to deliver the platform. Would they have gotten to him in the intervening time with their lists of cabinet members, the whispers in the ears of working together or else, etc.?

Yes, we are all aware of the sham. What floors me is how she exposes it without realizing what she is revealing. She thinks it's okay to expose this truth because she was SUPPOSED to win, goddammit!

What a farce our country is.
It's shameful.

Yup. She's not running for now, maybe. But my money would be on her jumping back in as soon as she can get a new book together and yet again reintroduce herself to the American people. Narcissists gotta narse, I guess.

@Ellen North @Ellen North
Right now I don't see what she has to sell because the Dims aren't running anything. They're making sure nothing else gets done and bankrupting:bullshitting the country with this Russia Did It phony excuse for losing the election to Donald Trump. (Which is why I was glad he won the election over the Clinton Creature. )

NEVER in my lifetime would I ever have imagined wanting a 'democrat' to lose to someone like Donald Trump. But here I am and here we are.

Screwed. Up, down, and sideways.

@Ellen North @nosleep4u And the Verrit dude claims he had to talk her into running, doesn't he? IIRC, she hemmed and hawed before formally announcing in 2008 too. Classic narcissist behavior. She wants us to want her. So yeah, I'm just not buying it. She's been "done" with politics before and we see what's happened.

Given her past, I suspect what she means by staying in politics is charging people for speeches and consulting. If the rumors are true that Obama wants to stay in charge in the backrooms of the DNC and donor parties, then looks like a cat fight is developing between them for control of the party and its money stream from donors.

And the thing is both will attack, marginalize, or force out as many progressives as possible.

@MrWebster I'm kind of curious about it too. Obama played his part for Her. I have a very hard time believing it was anything other than quid pro quo for having the Clinton machine (eventually) behind him. I'm not an insider, but all the inside stuff out there sure seems like there's no real love between them. So now, maybe he's seeing this as his chance to seize control of the party? As much as I'd love to see the Clinton influence finally doused, I'm not sure Obama-branded neoliberalism would be any better.

Since Her's already lied about running for election, (and just about everything else,) no, I don't believe Her this time, either.

Unless, of course, a re-write of the Constitution is planned to include a real coronation of Corporate Queen Hillary the First, complete with Pot-Holder-Hillary train and to carry it, adorable little pages in My little Pony costumes, as a shot aimed at Americans hoping for a representative social democracy?

The problem is, she'll still be manipulating the Party's levers of power, keeping its machinery oiled and running, and trying her best to crush any attempts at fundamental reform. I'd be surprised if Kamala Harris were not chosen to be Hillary's heir apparent, and given the full support of the Clinton machine.

I read that as, "Okay, you won't elect me, but you most certainly will elect whoever I choose for you to elect. Just watch."

So waiting for her to fall down and not get up so that the rest of us get a break.

Not getting my hopes up yet, personally. Lots of time to start making financial arrangements and accumulating money before the next Presidential election and Her's hemmed and hawed before... plus Her lies like a doormat, as we all know.

Her was also talking about perhaps running for NY Mayor earlier, possibly to get another official power position to grow from - no idea, but Her's sooooo pathologically greedy and power-hungry, I can hardly see Her being satisfied with being a part of any unofficially titled shadow government position, out of the public spotlight.

Hillary Clinton's 2016 announcement date a moving target
Dan Merica-Profile-Image

By Dan Merica, CNN

Updated 5:27 PM ET, Wed December 3, 2014

... Most recently, Politico reported Wednesday that Clinton is not expected to form an exploratory committee "until well after January 1" and that her "speech schedule indicates 2016 announcement may be months away."
This comes shortly after organizers announced last week that Clinton has added a number of seemingly paid speeches to her calendar, including two in Canada for late January and one in Silicon Valley in February. It's unlikely that Clinton would announce her candidacy before or during the midst of those paid speeches.
Here's a sampling of reports from the moving target that is Clinton's announcement date: ...

...Some sources tell CNN that if Clinton runs -- many still include this caveat -- her announcement will come in January 2015, much like she declared in January 2007 for her 2008 run. Others have said, however, that the former secretary of state is likely to wait later into the cycle to declare because there is no upside to getting in early. ...
