Clinton says she is being urged by ‘many, many, many people’ to run in 2020

The two-time presidential hopeful and former secretary of state wouldn’t definitively rule out another bid.

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday declined to rule out launching a future presidential campaign after her two failed bids, saying “many, many, many people” were pressuring her to enter the race.

“I, as I say, never, never, never say never,” the former secretary of State said on BBC Radio 5 Live. “I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.”

“But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans,” Clinton added.

…Reporters have doggedly asked Clinton that question on nearly every media appearance she’s made promoting a book, “The Book of Gutsy Women,” which she wrote with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

She has alluded to the possibility multiple times, including in a Twitter exchange in which she quipped back at President Donald Trump, who had urged “Crooked Hillary” to enter the race to edge out “Uber Left” Elizabeth Warren.
