However, the 23% who would be excited if she ran are going to be very loud.

And will whine even louder when she gets her ass kicked. Again. :facepalm:

A rumor floated around last week that perennial loser Hillary Clinton -- the female Harold Stassen of the Democrat Party -- might be interested in carpetbagging once more in the formerly great state of New York, and in particular the City of New York, a place where she's never lived a day in her life. Comes now this word from the New York Post:

Don’t hold out for Hillary Clinton to take on Bill de Blasio for New York City mayor, a top Clinton confidante said Sunday. “I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again,” former Clinton aide Neera Tanden told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Politicos are practically begging Clinton to run for New York City mayor to challenge de Blasio, Clinton’s former Senate campaign manager who was slow to endorse her for president. But after her devastating loss to Donald Trump, Tanden said Clinton will seek to stay relevant outside of the ballot box.

“I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years,” said Tanden, head of the Center for American Progress.

Thank god. She'd win easily, but I doubt she could do day to day real world governing.

And it was an expensive venture for Hillary !
(and many others - in more ways than financial)

Ouch: Clinton Failed Presidential Bid Cost $1.2 Billion

Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B

Such a cost for loss.

She really shouldn't try, and definitely won't be allowed to.

This looks like a fun read:

Interesting that Brazile partly blames sexism within the party itself for the election defeat, as opposed to Clinton's preferred excuse of misogynistic media and voters. It appears she overlooks some of her rash attempts to stitch up Sanders and her other contributions to Trump's surprise win - but that's only to be expected.
