Who should run against Trump? How about Hillary Clinton?

It’s time for Hillary Clinton to come out of retirement, lace up the gloves and get back in the ring with President Trump for what would be the biggest political rematch ever.


Call me crazy, but from what I’ve seen so far, Clinton is the only candidate short of Barack Obama who has the brains, the battle-tested brawn and the national presence to take out Trump. And Obama can’t run.


Bernie Sanders was fading even before his heart started acting up. Joe Biden has become Trump’s main talking point in the whole Ukraine-China impeachment mess, which hardly helps him. And he wasn’t exactly running away with it before that.


Elizabeth Warren has a following, but it’s not that much broader than Sanders’. If he drops out, she might pick up some of his votes. But there’s the big question of whether she appeals to anyone besides the furthest left element of the Democratic Party.


Depression over the current field was swirling through my head the other day when I popped into the office of my friend Steven Kay and saw that famous picture of Muhammad Ali standing victorious over Sonny Liston hanging on the wall.


That’s when the light went on: “Rematch!”


Think about it. Hillary is still the smartest of the bunch. She’s also better known than any of the candidates, so she doesn’t need a lot of money.


Most of all, she can take a punch. Heck, she can take a 2-by-4 over the head and stay standing.

Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes nationally in 2016, but of course lost the Electoral College. That’s not bad for one of the worst-run campaigns ever. You’ve got to think she and the party learned something.


She sure seems loose. Clinton has been making the media rounds to promote the book she wrote with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, “The Book of Gutsy Women.” She’s come off as funny, smart and natural.


It would be an astounding development if she got into the race. But these past three years have been one nonstop run of astounding. Why stop now?

Let's talk about Hilary who didn't win instead of the incompetent vulgarian puppet in the White House. Great deflection.

If you Google search this photo it goes to straight to the donald reddit page. If reddit won't allow it to be shared why is it allowed to be posted in Houzz?

She's in 3rd on Predictit, the betting website Hayday has posted multiple times. That would indicate to me that quite a number of people think she'll enter the race.

She won by three million votes The 78000 votes in three states screwed this country beyond repair. But that ain’t gonna happen next time.

I've suspected all along she wants to run again. Who is going to stop her?

Betting odds are higher that T won’t be the R nominee than that H will be the D nominee. The former gives me more hope than the latter concerns me.

Senior Analyst from predictit says it’s unusual for an incumbent to be betting at odds this low.

That prompted Clinton, who has twice run for the White House, to respond, "Don’t tempt me. Do your job."

Social media exploded about the prospect of a rematch.

Democrats keep scoffing at the idea that Hillary Clinton will run again.

And then, this. https://t.co/8Umovcc9tF— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) October 8, 2019

Donald Trump tweets that Hillary Clinton should run again in 2020.

Creating a 19-lane highway for Trump to attack familiar Dems (Biden, Hillary) for months and months while somebody else slides into the nomination is not a bad strategy for Dems. I just don't think it's actually the strategy being deployed. https://t.co/KQarx6JEmX— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) October 8, 2019

Trump won the 2016 election by a margin of 304-227 in the Electoral College, though Clinton won nearly 3 million more votes.

Hillary has stated repeatedly on TV that she has no desire to run again. She is enjoying being a grandmother and taking a much needed rest from politics.

OTOH, I do wonder how she would fare when matched up against Eliz Warren, should she run....

Idiot Hillary Clinton wanted to start an immediate war with Russia after she declared a No-Fly Zone over Syria.
